I just saw the note posted today that Jodie Marc-Lalonde of Turtle Paddleworks has closed down their operation due to high production costs and a bit of waning interesting in keeping it alive.

It's to bad, they always made a solid canoe as well Greenland touring paddles.

There are lots of great paddle makers and Jodie's were up there with the best of them.
