Re: Why don’t manufacturers update their websites ?

Simon64 I couldn't agree more, very frustrating.
There are some pictures (well sections!) of the Northshore Evolution not on their website but on the Sea Kayak Oban website, crazy!

Simon64, you did better than me finding a photo!
I wonder if they will be doing a composite version?

I'm sure Sam at Kent Canoes mentioned they were producing something around the 16ft mark, possibly called 'Vela'...I think!
Time will tell I suppose.

Re: Suboptimal trip end - Medway Forts

Oh yes, the Medway mud is very smelly and extremely sticky, I've found it takes a good few washes to get rid of it all!
Fortunately I've never had to return when the tide was that far out, so who was to blame for the tidal planning ;)

Re: North Shore Kayaks

Hi Tom, earlier in the year I read about a new kayak company called Evolution Sea Kayaks. I believe Mike Nelson designed their kayaks, the 'Voyager' was based on the Northshore Ocean design and the 'Nomad' based on the Atlantic. I really liked the look of the Voyager and once my tennis elbow is fina...

Hi Paul, we used 'Rhodes Roads' back in June, have a look at their website. Really nice guide with lots of island knowledge. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back at the end of day. We didn't want a double kayak so he managed to provide us both with a perception Essence. Good luck and en...

Re: Any Paddlers around maidstone area

I would also recommend Maidstone Canoe Club, well I would as I'm a member. I know it would be a bit more of an outlay but in return there are lots of benefits, use of clubhouse facilities including showers, toilets etc. Access to club boats of various types/disciplines to try, only drawback there is...

Re: Electric pumps - how old is your battery?

Being a lowley fire alarm engineer has some perks, access to lots of batteries is one.
I should really get round to fitting an electric pump to put them to some use!

We normally recommend renewal every 4-5 years but these are continuously in use/being charged.
