Re: 58" Big Dipper (Free Bird) paddle for sale

These are truly amazing paddles. Mine is probably an inch or two short but thankfully usable. Anyone thinking about this go for it. Beautiful paddle at a good price

Re: sea kayak wanted

Check out Cumbrian kayaking. Mike often has boats for sale so worth getting in touch. I bought one from him a couple of weeks ago. Very well priced!

You should be able to lift that no problem. Definitely lighter than the SOT as mentioned

Re: Mi 370 or sit on top

Knotted rope trailing behind might help keep it in a straight line.

I'd try to bargain on the £70 price too. Unless it includes a paddle

Re: Drysuit for playboating

I think a brand new one would but over time they start to let water in in places. The advantage being it's not normally a huge amount. Of course in this weather you might sweat in one so you'll get wet that way.

I don't think it matters. How breathable is your BA, spray deck or any material when it's wet?

Use what you are happy with. I used my own kayak but cross over type. Check the syllabus and make sure you're happy ticking them off in your boat.

Re: What car for a sea kayaker?

Mine is keyless start but not keyless entry. I can push the button through my drysuit/ drytrousers but can drive the car without fishing out the key. Useful for a quick shuttle.

Re: What car for a sea kayaker?

Echo the above really. Bigger estates with keyless entry. Look at the ones with 4wd if winter driving is a big one, plenty out there. If I knew I was driving in winter conditions I'd look at winter tyres too.

I'm based in Ulverston. Give me a shout of you ever want to meet up. Check out Cumbria canoeists. They have a website as Facebook group and often run sea kayaking trips.

Nookie dry trousers with built in socks are a brilliant investment. When I started out I used walking waterproofs with neoprene socks and shoes to keep my feet warm.

Re: Roof bars. Have you checked yours?

They can demand it all they like. Without a court order they can only ask. To be honest I'm the sort of person who, if at fault, will hold my hands up. Hell insurance might be cheaper if everyone was honest and didn't straight about these things.
