Re: boots for wetsuit

"semi-decent" :-)

Cheers.

boots for wetsuit

Just got a "Typhoon Hooded Kona 6/5/4mm". Are there any boots you would recommend to go with it. I do not want water too seep up my legs, while swimming or standing in water, so they should seal nicely around the chins (room in the boat is not a problem).

Cheers

Dreamt up either by a manufacturer of spraydecks or by someone with too much time on their hands and near zero real rescue experience.
Thank you. :-)

Re: Cracked P&H Cetus MV seakayak

It had a more or less vertical crack on both sides of the hull, respectively approximately 8 and 12 centimeters each and situated approximately in the middle of the boat under the cockpit rim.

Re: Cracked P&H Cetus MV seakayak

A flooded cockpit may typically hold anywhere between 100kg and 180kg of seawater - a considerable weight when being bounced around in an unforgiving environment... Right. Maybe being upside down in the trough, when the wave breaks. The buoyancy is in the ends, while the water hammers down the (wid...

List of UK seakayak symposiums

Think there used to be a list of symposiums in the UK, spread over the year - and over the isles. Can't seem to find it anymore. Anyone..??

He certainly meant a lot to me and my progress in, and understanding of, sea kayaking. If only he had been more known in Denmark. He's books are amongst the best written and illustrated, till this day, to be seen on the market. They still stands tall. A word from another one in Dereks league, and ge...

Well I like mine a very great deal, especially in rough water, and I am 90kg without camping gear. That explains why I felt challenged in the worst part of the 'funny water' areas at Anglesey... ;) Having said that, the cockpit ergonomics are completely crap Fits me very well. Did (the usual) work ...
