Re: NDK Seat Glued In Are they Prone to Breaking Loose

Hi Kayakbiker Retro-fitting the new high-performance seat is a bit fiddly but it will be worth it. It's way better for the posture. The factory use a Methacrylate glue (ITW Plexus MA30) but there are other methacrylate glues on the market. EasyComposites sell one (VM100) which works equally well. Do...

Re: VW T6 Roof Rack advice please!

T-tracks (if factory fitted from new) are rated to 150kg. They have additional mounting points on each side, totalling seven per track. As a specified extra at time of order it's £120 which is amazing value and surprising from VW. In the configurator its called something like "Roof load preparation"...

Re: Quantum FSK for sale

Despite much interest it is "still around". Unmarked, ready to go. Needs someone to take it on and do something! So all those Epic18X-ers, Pace17-ites and Taran-ettes look out 'cos the Quantum is coming and like "The Kracken" it will change your thinking.

Re: South Devon Trip Advice

Hi Jack I wouldn't leave a vehicle overnight at Richmond Walk. Try Blagdons boatyard at this time of year (adjacent) which would be more secure but no idea about charges. The advantage of Mountbatten is it's more secure for overnight parking and I believe you may have access to the showers and other...

Hello BritishStu I'm the dealer for Sea Kayaking UK in Plymouth. Although quite a distance from you (and so unlikely to make a sale I guess, given that you are across on the East coast) I'm happy to give some advice. For your build, there are three models in the NDK/Sea Kayaking UK range that may su...

Re: Carrying flares

Thumbs-up for the whistle - totally agree. The "hole" analogy was figurative. Picture a very small cove under steep cliffs with little headlands sticking out. So plenty of room to safely fire off a rocket or two. I'd never advocate doing it in a cave! If I was in an enclosed gully the last thing I w...

The usual recommendation for a rocket flare is to fire on your down wind side with the flare pointed slightly down wind so that the exhaust is not blown into your face as it would be if it is upwind of you.

Re: Carrying flares

Hi All Just a thought regarding para/rocket flares. It could be your best hope if you've been forced to land (medical/capsized/broken kayak) on a remote beach/gully surrounded by high cliffs. You're in a deep hole. A PLB/VHF or mobile phone may not get a signal out in this situation. They all need "...
