Looking for (2) canoes for Pailolo

Our previous canoes fell through. Looking to secure two canoes for Pailolo. If there's a Na Wahine crew that needs their canoe(s) shipped over to Hale O Lono, we can work something out.

Choosing the right sized blade

I know there's no one size fits all but would like to know about the general strategy of paddlers with choosing paddle blade sizes. I currently use a Viper Va'a FSN double bend with a 9.65" blade and feels like it might be too big for an OC-1. I get a lot more resistance per stroke which is great but finding it hard to keep up an aggressive spm. Do most paddlers with the larger Viper blade (or any other larger type of blades) use it for OC-6 with a smaller blade for OC-1? Curious what the thoughts are on this topic. Apologies if this has been posted.

Outriggers in Israel?

I'm planning to be in Haifa, Israel for about a month, from mid July to mid August. Does anyone know if there are any outrigger canoes or clubs anywhere in Israel?
