Any particular products people are using to remove oxidation, its on my Nelo Inuk and it has a clear Gel coat and looks awful Any of the fibreglass rubbing compounds, followed by a fibreglass polish should do. A chandlers (or an on-line chandlery) will probably havew the biggest range - but their p...
I too have an early Lomo Renegade drysuit, it is of a heavier material than the ones produced nowadays, it has served me well and is still going strong as one of my back up suits, although I have had it serviced at Lomo a couple of times. If my Kokatat last as long I shall be happy, the Kokatat does...
Coming from Germany I have a question: In the UK-Atlases I see numbers, like "01,02" or "03,08" attached next to the arrows, which I do not understand. Can someone explain these to me? You also see them in: http://www.sailingalmanac.com/Almanac/Tides/Streams/scottstream.html#NWScotStream thanks tom...
I have had a Pentax WG1 for the last 4 years, it has suffered lots of abuse over this time but is still going strong. This model is a few generations old so I'm sure there would be improvements in the later models. I expect there are cameras out there which may have more features and take slightly b...

You would think the Canadians would be using the Knifing J As they have had the stroke named after them:-) it's the stroke I use the most if on a flat water slog, as I find it the most comfortable and efficient stroke.
The great thing about sea kayaks is they have lots of storage space so you can take another pair of shoes with thicker soles to change into when carting boat and gear across rough ground, Crocs seem quite popular, but I use trainers.

Various Teva trainer style shoes in the summer, Whilst in the winter Lomo boots, unless in my A Acuta then slip-on neoprene socks with a thin reinforced sole,its all that will fit, they go over the booties a lot easier than I thought they would.
Anglesey outdoors campsite near Holyhead, so very close to Rhoscolyn and with the added advantage of the "Paddlers return" bar. Failing that there is another campsite next door, The valley of the rocks, I think its about a 20 min drive to Rhoscolyn from these sites.
This is the one I was looking at, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/McMurdo-Fastf ... 0800653777
