Re: Another East Lyn Pin

I personally think REmoving trees/debris is quite different from moving rocks around. If i cut/remove trees from rivers I place well above the high water line and therefore unable to cause a further problem. The problem I can see with adding rocks to protect the undercut is there's a high chance it ...

Re: Dart Levels - Now with added Twitter!

Thought this may be of some use to people when working out levels on the upper from Dartmeet. These rocks (Left of shot) are just after the West Dart enters and can be used in the same way as the ledge at Newbridge. When there's no water on the first or upstream boulder, its off the ledge.

Re: Any suggestions of good repair kit to carry in boat?

I've had good success with surf wax on my jefe with splits. A good rub on the outside and inside seems to last a few days/trips. You don't need to dry the boat to get it to stick and it is very flexible. It's also Real easy to remove when you get the time to carry out a proper fix.

Re: Dart Levels - Now with added Twitter!

Haven't seen it in the last couple of day's but it sounds as if it's been on/lapping the ledge for most of the week, with around 10mm a day. Dartcom's showing another 10mm today so would guess it should be around a lapping the ledge level again in the morning.

How about the metal spike river left on the drop? Is it still there? The other day it looked as if the rock had been chipped off and a spike drilled in. Guessing that now the sand bags have gone it's under water! Be carefull.

Re: What makes the ideal locking Carabiner for river use?

Quite often we’re putting a lot of force on kit during rescues. There’s the force of the river acting on one large, heavy lump of plastic,(probably full of water) that we’re trying to retrieve. 1. The main advantage of a large crab is you can fit more in to it when building rescue setups. If there’s...

Re: Question - construction of varoius cowtails ...

You could buy some tubular climbing tape/ sling and feed some shock cord thru. If you use a shorter piece of shock cord than tape you'd get the shock absorption for towing that you are after, and the benifit of the reduced length. Overhand or figure of 8 to form loops for attachment. Taunton leisure...

Quantas and Boat bags?

I'm off to Aus next weekend and want to take my mega max out with me. Quantas say it has to be in a padded bag! So I'm now left with one week to sort something out. I was wondering if Any of you lovely UKRGB folk have any ideas, experience with flying with Quantas and boats?

The main line on the fall's is a distinct possibility IMO. But it's an incredibly shallow landing and I would like the gauge to be reading a minimum of 7.5.

Unless it's in, or above the section Mark paddled, it's below. Reading the guide it sounds like its lower to me, mainly because there's no warning of super narrow bits in the guide for the section
