Re: Conwy Canoe Access Egress Signage North Wales

I should have known mentioning the Dee would be a mistake...... :( I wasn't whispering particularly, although it was much smaller then I anticipated it being; it was just a side note before someone picked me up on the fact it is only BOPA's agreement. I like your phrase pseudo agreement and as you s...

Re: Conwy Canoe Access Egress Signage North Wales

Thanks Geth, that is brilliant news. Do you know anything more about it? Who paid/built it, who persuaded the land owner and how, what the fisherman have said or done and all that sort of stuff. I saw that some people have entered into an "agreement*" on the Dee as well, is this a sign of improved a...

Re: Conwy Canoe Access Egress Signage North Wales

Surely someone local can confirm or deny the presence of these signs?

I'd be interest to know how, in a couple of years, we have gone from militant Taxi drivers hassling paddlers to permission signs!

Re: Small van recommendations please.

PS, do you know that Van speed limits are lower then cars unless it is a car derived van and under 2tonnes? An estate/berlingo/partner should be under the weight limit but a Ford Connect, a Renault Kangoo or anything bigger is over the limit which means 50 on single carriage ways and 60 on dual rat...

Re: Small van recommendations please.

Sorry for the long essay, but once I got writing it all just flowed out and I couldn't be bothered to edit it down......... I hope my thoughts are helpful, bit if you don't want to read it all I recommend, the car version instead of the van, even better would be to buy something bigger then a berlin...

Re: wanted cheap playboat

I'm selling my Wavesport Big EZ It's a very versatile boat, great for playing in, but also brilliant at surfing and good for river running. I'm happy to consider offers and depending on your location maybe be able to help deliver it. http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=8079...

She has served me well, I've had many a great trips out in the surf, rivers and badly attempting to play boat, but recently I have become more of a canoeist and only used it a handful of times so just can't justify keep her. The bo...
