No it's not a surfski I know, but it's pretty cool.

It's my 26 foot oC1 sprint racing outrigger (for flatwater only)
I have had these before and did many races in them.
But this one is very special and was given to me by Hugh Fisher (and ex Canadian Olympian)
I restored and repainted it
(after doing some new wood work and glasswork on it.)

Anyway, it's not fast like a ski (but I did get one like it up to 15kms per hour once for a few seconds)
But it glides like nothing else on the water between strokes.
And I just thought you guys would like to see it.

That is a beautiful boat! I've been doing a lot of OC-1 paddling lately with a Scorpius XS; these boats are a lot of fun! I have an extra set of longer iakos so I can use either the canoe paddle or a kayak paddle, but I'm using the canoe paddle primarily; my fingers and wrists have been having some pain lately when paddling my ski so this gives my joints time to recover while still having fun on the water. :)

Thanks Peter.

And Robin, yes that's my shop there. It's my job, I run a woodworking business.

A kayak paddle on an outrigger....well I've never tried that!


If you want to see more pics of the shop, etc.

Google: Steve Willgoose and you'll find "Willgoose Millwork"
That's me.
