Re: Mad river explorer 14TT or alternatives

Have you looked on song of the paddle forum? There's usually a few good second hand options on there, and a wealth of knowledge on boat choice!

Lost paddle on river Tees @ Abbey

Hi,

A mate of mine took a swim at Abbey gorge on the tees (21st feb) and lost his paddle. It is an open canoe blade: a black Moll Pioneer with red writing. Unfortunately it has no name etc on it.

If anyone finds it I am sure he would be most happy!!

Thanks,
Al

Re: For Sale Mad River Reflection Canoe

Doesn't sound like the boat is in such a "great condition".

At the moment I won't commit to coming to see the boat....maybe some photos would help?

You could try Canoe Cheshire http://www.canoecheshire.com/.

He's local and a fantastic coach...and a member of a kayak club so may be able to help with pool sessions to master that roll?!

Enjoy!

Re: UKCC L3 does it still exist?

I think the canoe-england website is just not been updated to include 2012 dates.

The L3 can only be run at the national centres i think, so look at the PYB website, or Glenmore lodge.
I know the PYB site has its L3 dates for next year...

So far it has been for many swims, been left on for weeks between trips and with its keypad lock certainly is not gonna undo itself. Its a bit of a brick, but is essentially waterproof, s...

Hey dave,

Hows the search going?
Not sure what state these are in, or if they could be suitable and outfitted up to the spec you want, but definately in your price range!!
