Re: Valley Hatch Toggles

Do you mean the bit of elastic cord with a white plastic clip at each end?
Easy enough to make up your own with some clips from Ebay or Amazon.

I binned my original Valley ones and replaced with some 2mm dyneema cord, tied to hatch cover and deck line, as they kept unclipping on their own.

Karitek - is everything ok?

I've been trying to contact Karitek since Tuesday.
Nobody's answering the phone and no reply to emails or responding to phone messages left.
I hope everything is ok as they're usually very good.

Is anyone else having problems or can shed any light?

Thanks

Wanted - Whisky 16 preferably Prolite

As above,

I've got a standard Whisky 16 and love it, but it's been pretty well used now and I'd love a "younger" one and Prolite would be great.

Based in Somerset but will travel.

Re: Entry Level Surfski Wanted!

The V8 hull is very similar to the Epic 18X which I found slightly less stable than the Epic 16x, the most stable is the 18x Sport. I bought the 16x as I didn't want a Taran and also wanted a fast 16ft ish sea kayak, as I find in the real world they're just as fast as 18s but more versatile. When I ...

Re: Entry Level Surfski Wanted!

I was asking a similar thing last year. Coming from sea kayaking I wanted a "beginner" ski. Please bear in mind stability in ski terms is somewhat different to sea kayak stability. What they class as stable is like sitting on a log! I have an Epic 16x kayak so wanted something that would be a like a...

Mega Axis Sea Kayak

Anybody seen one in the flesh or better still paddled one? Specs, dimensions, rocker etc look pretty good. I believe it's a Mega badged Zegul/Tahe but can't find anything on their site which matches the description. Might have to arrange a visit/paddle. http://www.surfkayaks.com/product.php?producti...

Some more for the list Epic 18x and 18x Sport (the sport is more stable and speed difference is negligible) Taran 16 in the real world just as fast as the 18 and more manoeuvrable Epic 16x I bought one of these when my mate bought a Taran 16. Nothing between them re speed. Epic sails a bit faster an...

Paddles are just simple Carlisle 1 piece alloy shaft sea paddles. I was happy to pretty much give them away with the boats as postage would be quite expensive.

Re: Has anyone heard of an epic 16 cruiser touring kayak?

Not paddled the 16 Cruiser but I own a 16x and love it. I replaced the standard seat for an Aries one which also lowered the centre of gravity and added a little stability. It's a fast boat, great for long distance or multi day trips, but also manoeuvrable enough for day trips. Great in rough water,...
