Cheap sea kayak wanted

Im a WW boater who now lives 300m from the sea. Looking for a rockhopper, mostlikely plastic, for coastal touring, NW Wales/ Anglesey. Not looking to spend too much as not entirely sure I enjoy it enough to get a second set of kit. Sit in for a 6ft 4in 16 stone guy. Anything out there?

Press the call button and state in your finest english accent " Nous sommes une voiture, pas une camionette!" Has always worked for us. The price drops pretty heavily.

Does anyone know if this is still runnable? Never really heard much about it, suggesting its not too commonly run and the guide which was seemingly updated in 2001 suggests it was tree filled back then.

Re: My Feet are leaking!

Yes it's fabric socks I've got and I think I look after them. Maybe latex is the way to go. It's just that I'm so tight, I squeek when I walk. I thought there maybe a cheap water repellent that some of you might use. At least the waters warming up. Paul Have you tried ironing them? Its risky but it...

Re: Airbags for Pyranha Fusion?

Buy a box of wine, consume contents. Open box, pull out big silver/transparent bag. Whilst in a risen state of positivity, crawl inside the boat. Shove the bag behind the foot rests then blow bag up. Try to work out how to get back out the boat. Simple.
