The headquarters of Cottage Life Magazine are located nearby my wife's workplace. Knowing as she does of my paddle hobby, she noticed a giant ottertail paddle on display of their main facade and thought it may be of interest. The weathered paddle has blended in with the reddish tone of the brick, but it's a nice decoration, nontheless. Here's a shot...
Cottage Life Building Paddle
Using some measurement tools in photoshop and extrapolating from the dimensions of the doorway height, I estimated the paddle to be around 115" (just over 9.5 feet) long with a 52" long x 12" wide blade. Huge!
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
