Re: Tryweryn pay and play

When it started up it was great and working well. The last few times there has been a lot more waiting about and no end of day shuttle back from Bala. I understand that rafts get priority as they bring in more revenue, but extra shuttles at busy times are needed.

WANTED - kids sit on top

I am after a sit on top for a five year old. The market is pretty limited as most are too big. If someone has something similar to the Pelican Solo and wishes to sell it - please get in touch. Thanks. Nick

Re: Pyranha moan

I would echo what nick 16 has said. I have had a number of Pyranha boats and the design and feel of the boat (including the outfitting) was fine. However, there have been quality control issues. I too have seen examples of holes misaligned etc and so have a number of friends. I also took a new boat ...

I have these:

Hope that helps.

Re: CT charges

Myself and paddling friends go to CT a lot. I have always found the staff thoroughly nice and accommodating folk. The system does appear a little silly though. I think it would be better to have a total cost at point of booking as opposed to added charges which are in fact essential (to satisfy thei...

Typhoon Multisport FOR SALE

It's the black and grey version and size large. Seals all good, with the wrists being replaced earlier this year. No holes or tears. There is some wear to the heals of the booties but I have not noticed any water coming in at the feet. Both zips are fine, not kinked or stiff. Some sewing has come aw...

Re: WANTED.. Pyranha microbat 240

There is a chap that paddles the Dee regularly. He has one currently, but changes his boat every 4 months. I will pm you his details. He's a nice chap. Probably let you have it for your Solo.
