Double Blade Paddle

MAKING A DOUBLE BLADE PADDLE, in pdf format, has 30 photos and information on making a double blade or kayak paddle in ultra light weight carbon fiber with foam core blades. It is NOT a “stand alone” article but is a useful supplement to the paddle making chapter in my canoe book. It assumes you have the book for the diagrams, materials sources, and basic information on working with epoxy and composites. However, those who have some experience with epoxy techniques might use the information without the book to build a paddle of their own design.
