Re: Three piece Romany Surf sizes ?

First of all, there is no such thing as a standard three-piece. Each boat is built to the exact requirements of the customer. The key limiting factor is the distance between the front and rear (not sloping) bulkheads. It is possible to reduce the length of the cockpit section (by reducing the distan...

Re: Three piece Romany Surf sizes ?

Hi

NDK three-piece kayaks are built to conform to maximum airline luggage dimensions so the largest section will be a maximum of 190cm and usually a little less to allow for protective bags/packing.

Lost paddle at Fowey, Cornwall

Hi Folks Hoping to find a paddle accidentally left propped up against a bush in a car park in Fowey last week. The owner is a very decent lady (one of my students and a friend too) and it would be so nice if it found its way back to her. It's a four piece Celtic Paddle and is unusual as it's a strai...

Re: Sea kayak recommendation for inflexible hip

Both the Romany Surf and Romany Excel have big cockpit openings and no front pod to get in the way. Very easy to get in and out.

Re: Increasing radioactive discharge in Plymouth

"Plymouth Sound National Marine Park" will be the first designated marine park in the UK. "Get in, on or under Plymouth Sound" is the call to action on their website - should it carry a government health warning?
