Re: How much flex in single layer plastic?

Is the Romany S same as Romany Sport. I see references to Romany Surf RM - are they all the same, I.e., RM version of Romany Surf with fibreglass cockpit rim? Any problems with the mix of the two materials? On the face of it looks a really good option. The "Romany S RM" was a triple layer kayak pro...

Or Romany Sport if you prefer plastic. They are all very capable but as previous posters have said, it...

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.

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...
