Hi all, Several years ago I built a 17ft Atkinson traveler that I have used ever since for both solo and tandem trips. After last summer I finally decided that I should build another boat that is a bit smaller, since about 80% of my paddle time is solo and all the weight on portages and freeboard on lakes is less than ideal. Many of these paddles are for the day only, but I try to do at least one 2wk trip a year, which is usually solo. A guy down the road sold me the form that he used to build a his 15ft Ami. It draws inspiration from the Chesnut Pal, and is "50-55lbs". I am wondering if there is anyone here who has paddled this much and can give me some feedback on it's use in various situations. Thanks in advance.
