Re: Loch Lochy HYDRO

Last time I checked that drop was about 7 foot deep after swimming around in the pool for a while dropping a throw bad full of stones in till it hit the bottom, 2 meters maximum. To be fair and play the devils advocate, if you are going to build a hydro scheme then it is a pretty good place to do so...

Re: New Dagger Playboat?

The thing is this-it is all very good putting up pictures of a nice red boat and a video of a green one, but until you have seen how ALL of the colors will paddle it is a very naive thing to do to order one and assume it will paddle the same(unless it is the same color as the one you have seen perfo...

Re: River Earn - Comrie to Crieff

On the Earn there are a fair few weirs and strainers-none spring to mind between comrie and crieff (although there is an evil staircase of weirs at the top of comrie) and a small rapid just at the bottom of the park in comrie-presumably where they would put on. It would be worth having a quick walk ...

Go IRF. BCU and SRA (despite the latter being IRF affiliated) are not very internationally recognised. Get your SRT as well as you will need this along with a first aid ticket. Muzza at Splash does IRF training, I think he will make you work for crap all money to progress with your ticket- but that ...

Re: Scotland canoe trip ideas 4 days

Check out going from the top of Loch Garry(starting just below the dam out of loch Quoich) down to Fort William-I have done the Kingy up there walking into it from Loch Arkaig side (not recommended) and the length of the loch afterwards. You will find awesome rapids right in the middle of the Loch, ...

Re: Top Ten Tick List

Just classic, inspiring runs that are within the reach of an average 4+ish UK boater. Would I be correct in thinking that you are "an average 4+ish UK boater"? I would guess that the average UK boater paddles easier than 4+ish, and you've (probably inadvertently I'll give you) ruled out a significa...

Re: Do we need slings?

I concur, I have never seen the advantage of tape over a sling really. Was simply stating that on rivers we deal with such minimal fall factors etc it is not really worth comparing to the tests demonstrated in the video's. Also the fact that the rope that we use as throw lines will melt of put under...

Re: Do we need slings?

I would love to see a situation on a river where a sling tied with a tape know would break considering the shock load that it would carry on a fall factor is still well below 1 for 99% of the time. I gave up on tape simply because tape knots are suck a pain in the ass to undo after bearing a signifi...

Re: Looking for a GPS tracker to log trips

A good friend of mine who I run with uses one of the garmin forerunner 305 watches. This seems to have the edge on alot of other Garmin ones that get used as the battery life is longer and it doesn't get stung by the cold so much. The functions it has are very impressive and it seems very easy to lo...
