V1 huli recovery

Just curious if anyone knows a way to get back into a V1 from the off ama side. I've tried in shallow water without much success and I'm not sure if it's me or well, me.

Fuze vs Pegasus

I want to buy a new OC1, I'm a light paddler (62 kg) and I paddle actually with an heavy "brazilian huricanne".(i live one part of the year in brazil and other part in france).I m not interesting in buy the ultimate canoe on the market...
I'm limited with the Hurricane in rought ocean and chopp water so I think change for an other Kanu.
I think Fuze or Peggy are good for my weight. I want to race in molo solo 2011 so I have to paddle the same boat to train and to race.How boat is more easy to find or rent in Oahu?(peg or fuze)?
The fuze looks like comfortable (good point for 6 and more houre of race) but I like the line of the Pegasus.
What are you thinking guys (and girls) , fuze or Pegasus?

Anyone paddle a 2009 HUKI V1-X (New Version) yet?

Anyone paddle a 2009 HUKI V1-X (New Version) yet?

If so, could you provide some impressions?

Thanks in advance,



I have a buddy who owns an auto repair shop...says he can repaint the surface of an OC1 or ski using auto paint that will weigh about 3/4 lbs and buff out any surface scratches....anyone try some thing like this before?

taking off rudder?

Hi everyone,

I'm shopping around for my first oc1 and would like to buy used since i'm a beginner. Ideally, i would love a rudderles since i'm an adaptive paddler and cannot use the rudder anyway. i'm wondering how taking off the rudder on an oc1 would affect the performance of the boat? Alternately, how would leaving the rudder on without using the pedals affect the performance? The boat i'm looking at right now is the Fusion but am keeping my eye out for any others that pop up on y2kanu & craigslist. i'll be paddling mostly north shore (oahu) side.

Thanks for any help!!

Poly V1 in JPN

Not a high-tech, super-light machine.
But fun enough and glowing here.

Holopuni Canoes

Does anyone know if Holopuni Canoes is still in business, making OC-3 paddle and sailing canoes? Their website, www.holopunicanoes.com , seems to be non-functional.


Does anyone out there have experience with the bent shaft Tahiti Rame paddle. I have heard they have a hybrid model out also. I am interested in how it compares to the straight shaft paddle that you paddled before as well as comments on its constuction, Would you recommend this paddle? Please restrict comments to its use on an OC1 OR OC2.

Rigging with rubber strips or bike inner tubes??

Does anyone have any photos or advise on how to rig a surfing canoe with rubber strips. I am not sure if what's being used are old bike inner tubes?? Any advise would be appreciated. I am using quickstraps, but I am affraid that there is not enough flexibility in the straps and eventually I will break something. Any advise would be appreciated, from rigging to type of rubber to use (or if bike inner tubes). Mahalo
