Re: Kingpin 6.4 FS pickup west london

Ebay auction ends tonight. This could be a bargain! The boat's got lot's of life in it. If I had the space to store it I'd definitely be keeping it.

Re: Playboat Wanted

I have a kingpin 6.3. It's not very old school but definitely cartwheel-able.

Re: Kingpin 6.4 FS pickup west london

This is on ebay now here

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dagger-Kingpi ... 500wt_1204

I really need to get rid of this boat as I will soon have nowhere to store it so I'll probably take any reasonable offer.

Kingpin 6.4 FS pickup west london

Hi, all I have a green kingpin 6.4 for sale. It's one of the older ones I bought it second hand a couple of years ago. It's got some scrapes and scratches but nothing disastrous. I'm in shepherds bush and I don't have a car so I can't deliver sorry. Make me an offer. I'll get pics up as soon as I can.

Moving to London, any advice?

I'm moving next month to somewhere around Shepherds Bush/Hammersmith, haven't quite got the location sorted yet. I'm interested in joining a local club to meet some boaters so I'd be interested in hearing any recommendations. I've also got to find somewhere to keep my boats so a club with a boat sto...

That was pretty good. I'm not normally a fan of HPP videos.

I liked the water level footage. Was that just a camera taped to a paddle?

Re: Uganda

I would say the guiding is totally worth it. KTN were fantastic and really set us up. If you don't know where you're going it is really important to know the channels of the river and for that alone you'll need advice. They also gave us coaching which was really helpful and organised airport shuttle...

Re: Uganda

We just got back. The only issue is the Dam. General opinion among the guides seemed to be that silver back will be closed to paddlers pretty soon. There's not much you can do about that though and there's still plenty to paddle. I spent about £400 + £200 for three days guiding with NRE we stayed at...

Re: Loose those drain bung woes

There is no way to tie the drainbung on, so you'll lose it easily ... but it is of course easy to replace, so an endlessly recurring vicious loop ensues ... I've always thought that it's better not to have them tied on. If you get into the habit of holding onto the bung or sticking it in your BA th...

Re: The Dream Result premiere in London.

Seems crazy to hold a kayak film event in London.

Why not choose somewhere with some decent paddling options? That way people might be more inclined to travel to see it.

Re: In 15 years of boating I have never needed to do a Z-Drag...

As a compromise, how about one pulley already attached a sling in the pocket, so you can set-up a c-drag in seconds? I've personally never experienced a situation in which a z-drag succeeded where a c-drag has failed. And if the situation was an emergency I'd go for the quickest possible solution. ...
