Re: car keys

In previous vans (Transit,Dispatch) I got a key cut with no chip so would just open doors. Have used a combination lock key safe and hook it to my towing hitch but not really required now. After a few undesierables were interested in my modern Transit outside my house I have replaced the door lock w...

Re: boat advice please, 90kg with marauder and cyclone

Re: boat advice please, 90kg with marauder and cyclone

I used to love my Marauder(about 15years ago) but if I didn't paddle for a while then it was a handful for 10mins. I moved onto a Neutron after it (because of injuries) and now on to others The Scarab/Neutron style kayaks I would expect you to find more stable and have more control over. The Maraude...

Re: Could you recommend a boat or two please

Composite will be a hell of a lot better in every way, especially the feel of the surf You could get in contact with Skern Lodge as they have a Mega demo fleet in Westward Ho (N Devon).

Re: Fin replacement

http://www.m-prodesigns.com do fins AND adapters so you can fit surfboard orientated fins
Otherwise look at Mega (surfkayaks.com) or Ride (ride-kayaks.com)

As for being identical to the other two? That comes down to your set up (which can be changed) and what your preferences are
