Re: Do cockpit covers reduce fuel consumption?

You're driving a vehicle with the aerodynamics of brick, then you've bolted a scaffold tower to it and added two bin lids on top, cockpit covers will make negligible difference to fuel economy. But they will stop your kayaks filling with rainwater and overloading your bars, they also look better.

Re: Thoughts - Rockpool Taran 18

I'm 6' and 95kg and have both, although technically speaking I have a 18 and the missus has the 16 which if I'm a good boy I'm allowed to paddle. Both are great boats the key difference that you feel is in forward speed (18) and manoeuvrability (16). If your not bothered about forward speed / have f...

Re: Romany v Alaw Bach

Have never paddled a Romany, so cannot comment on that aspect. I would say that the build quality of Rockpool is way ahead that of SKUK/NDK boats.

Pyranha 9RL / Stout with neoprene cockpit cover (Pool use only so like new)

This boat has never been used in the wild and in consequence is better than most ex-demo boats on offer. Fit out kit included.

Includes Pyranha cockpit cover.

Based near Darlington (home) or in Sunderland (work). I do travel about the UK so maybe able to deliver if it fits with my plans.

Re: Bow deck clutter

If you paddle with a group you may want to access your pump for others, not just when you go for a swim. A pump and map are the only two things I keep on my deck.

Re: Insurance for courses

Two possibilities:

He is running a First Aid course which is a prerequisite for BCU course - he is covered under his BCU insurance.

The club is offering a course to its members - its covered under the clubs policy.

Either way I think you are over thinking this one.
