Anything that's 3D printed is just awesome in my books. Doesn't matter if it's this thing or that thing, it's awesome. Leave it up to Jim Smith over at Grass Roots Engineering to take things to the next level with his latest project, a 3D printed sea kayak.
If you find yourself racing somebody on the interstate and looking for that little bit of extra boost, make sure you bring your canoe paddle. The definitive proof is here that it really does make all the difference. Here it the link to the original video. Just make sure you have your computer speakers turned down. It's a touch loud.
I love this photo of a young Ernest Hemmingway paddling a canoe. Growing up, he picked up his love for canoeing and camping while he spent his summers at the family cottage on Walloon Lake (not quite in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan but almost there). Here is another one from when he was a very young boy. Top photo credit: Ernest Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, BostonSecond photo credit: paulfrasercollectibles.com
I was really excited to get an email late yesterday from Richard Parkin, the editor of Ocean Paddler Magazine announcing that the latest issue is hot off the press and available for download (print copies were going out in a day or so). I have been waiting for this one as I had a feature article on kayaking around Michipicoten Island on Lake Superior. Since nobody except my mother would be ever interested in reading a pure trip diary type article I decided to talk more about the history of the island and why I think it’s one of the best places to paddle on Lake Superior. I wrote from the perspective that if somebody from the UK is looking to visit Canada and paddle a challenging route, Michicipicoten Island needs to be on your bucket list.

The Anatomy of a Sailor

I love this. Now somebody get creative and make one for kayaking.
