Re: Sweet Strutter M/L & Playboater Spraydeck For Sale

No repairs, no holes, just patches of wear where the cag rubs.

Sweet Strutter M/L & Playboater Spraydeck For Sale

The Strutter is a few years old, but not had that much use, mainly flat water, Nene WWC and one trip/swim at HPP. I think I may also have worn it when I did my WW 3-star at the Tryweryn, in which case there was a little bit of headruddering at the bottom of that grade 2 stretch that runs from the be...

Re: Creek boat large wanted £300 - £350

I've got a Large Burn for sale, if it's what you're looking for. I'm open to any sensible offers. Plainly the £499 I asked on eBay was too high, so I might be open to £350.

Another Large Pyranha Burn

Not the time to be selling Burns at the moment, it seems? I bought this from Plas y Brenin in April 2012 for £599. Hardly used it and improved the spec/state of repair, put it on eBay @ £499, no bids. I see here others are trying to sell for less than that. Ho hum. So any offers? It's yellow and red...

Re: Lessons learnt

1. Cereal bars rather than chocolate for me - too fat already. 2. Paddler too heavy and unfit - see above. 3. Mood/mindset - too right. Spending too long looking, discussing, checking, holding a meeting - just makes me more nervous. Conversely I'll always remember a stretch on the Soca that we just ...

Re: Two Spraydecks for sale - Des Mes and Seals Pro Rand

The Seals deck has now been sold. Any interest in the other one? I know it's only a cheap one but it's in good condition. Should fit things like Recoils, Mambas, those sort of sizes.

Any offers?

Two Spraydecks for sale - Des Mes and Seals Pro Rand

Neither of these has been used much, so I'm having a bit of a clearout. The first is a light grey Desperate Measures 'own brand' neoprene deck, with the yellow strap across the knees. Waist size is L/XL, deck size I can't read on the label, it's been handwritten and looks like a V and a line, or it ...

Re: Usk Bunkhouse Recommendations

We stayed at the White Hart, Talybont-on-Usk, http://www.breconbunkhouse.co.uk, in Nov. Bedding smelt strongly of detergent, but good facilities, nice pub, self-catering or really nice food in the pub, inc full English breakfast.
