PBK 12

Post by treecutter »

I ordered a set of plans today for the Folding PBK 12. Has anyone here ever built or had an opportunity to paddle one?

I'm hoping you'll get a reply from someone on here. But in case you don't, I'm sure there are some people on the UK Open Canoeing website, SongofthePaddle.co.uk who have built and in some cases repaired and refurbished PBKs.

http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/forum/ ... id=5668765 (hoping this url works--it was a search I did on that website for Percy Blandford Kayak that showed up a good number of threads ...)

As an aside, Percy Bladford only died a couple of years ago at the age of 101. More info (and a review of his posthumously published autobiography) here: http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/forum/ ... ford+kayak )

All the best,
Ian

Scroll down to 2014, a member built the PB14, this might help. Also Percy Blandfords book, canoes and canoeing is often on the net or Amazon. Usually not cheap but it might help. In the UK kayaks are often called canoes so don,t be put off by the title.
