For your weight it will be too big unless fully loaded.

Re: Mega Sea Kayaks

Pete who now owns Mega used to be a partner in kayakingkit.com and imported Tahe and Zegul boats. I bought both a Tahe Greenland T and later a Zegul Greenland GT from them. Both great boats.

Re: Sea Kayaks for Sale x 6

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,...

Re: FSKs.....

Don't rule out the Taran 16 or Epic 16x. In the real world they are just as fast as the 18s as less drag, more manoeuvrable too so still good day boats as long as you don't want to go rockhopping in the case of the Epic.

Re: Best Expedition Fast Sea Kayak Options?

Don't take any notice of the 58cm width. That is simply across the deck at it widest point. It's more like 52/53 at the waterline as it curves in very quickly. Initially I found it a little unstable, but my other main boat is a Sirona. Once I got used to it I've found it fine, maybe moderate initial...

Re: Should I get a Valley Sirona RM or a Zegul Arrow Play? (Nuka?)

I've got a Sirona RM and it is my "go to boat" for rockhopping and surf play. I used to have a Zegul Greenland GT which was great and very manoeuvrable but not particularly tough and so not ideal for your use. Unless you get the top spec Arrow Play you'll be in the same situation. Valley do the Siro...

Re: Best Expedition Fast Sea Kayak Options?

I've got the Epic 16x and love it. I paddle it with two friends who both have the Taran 16 and they love theirs. Performance wise there's nothing between them. We also have Flat Earth Sails and these boats are really easy to sail with the rudders. The Epic has loads of storage space and a large cock...

Re: Kayak sail

Expedition Kayaks in Australia now manufacture and sell Flat Earth Sails. I bought mine direct from them, they will also value the package "appropriately" if you ask them. Early last year mine came in at about £300 for the full set.

Re: Scorpio Advice Please -Scudder or Skeg

I've got a number of boats set up for sailing, 2 are skeg only and two are rudder only. For sailing the rudder is way better than a skeg, and a lot less work. I've not used a scudder but Douglas Wilcox wrote a very comprehensive review of the mk2 Scorpio with scudder and sail. https://seakayakphoto....

As for me, much as I like the Stratos I never paddle them now, I'm always in the Sirona

Have a look on Aliexpress for diving lights. I've bought both plastic and metal ones and funnily enough they bear a remarkable resemblance to expensive ones here. £10 will be more than enough for what you want.

Re: GPS

I use Viewranger for maps and think i paid about £50 for full 1:50 OS maps. For charts I use Navionics Uk and Ireland which was free! Just remember to put your phone on flight mode so it's not spending all day searching for a signal, wifi and bluetooth devices.
