Re: "OLD SKOOL IS KOOL" THE BEST BOATS

I had a foreplay at the same hight and weigh, couldn't sit in it for more than 45 minutes. And even neoprene socks made things worse for my size 10s. That said it was a fun boat, I swapped mine for a ws big easy, best decision ever. Found it just as fast and playful with a hell of a lot more foot ro...

Re: What car for a paddling vehicle?

If you intend to keep the van and save money you are probably on the wrong track to begin with. I looked into running two vehicles and decided annual costs greatly outweighed any potential fuel saving

Re: Is £200 a good price for a wavesport BIG EZ

The add is a bit weird I grant you but I think the price is spot on. I sold a battered ex demo one about 6 years ago for 190. Imo if you're between 13 - 15 stone you should seriously consider it, a lovely old school boat with lots of foot room. Comfortable for a proper river trip, I only sold mine b...
