WANTED: 40 used sea kayaks, 5 used canoes, paddles and equipment for a project in Africa!

Having been paddling for some 20 years, when I moved to Rwanda, a small country in the middle of Africa, a couple of years ago I set up 'sea' kayaking on Lake Kivu in the African Rift Valley and a canoe trip on a local river.

Re: Icom.m23.hand held vhf.radio.
