Hi! I'm good thank you and glad you replied here also as the email has vanished into the ether. I have it listed elsewhere for £650 based on the going rate for used Kokatats.

That's clever!
I hope so! I have this pfd but have yet to get the compressed air cartridge as they couldn't ship it from the States. Apparently is the same as used for bicycle tyres.

Re: How much buoyancy do you need?

Best of both worlds? https://kokatat.com/product/seao2-pfd-lvusea Unlike any other PFD, the SeaO2 incorporates a 'hidden' flotation chamber within the body of the vest. In an emergency, the PFD's inherent 7.5 lbs. of flotation can be immediately boosted to 22.5 lbs. by releasing the contents of the ...

Epic Relaxed Touring Paddle, Full Carbon, with carry bag - now sold

These are full carbon construction with foam core, lightweight and strong, 210-220 adjustable length, and feather with a lever lock. Super light I think they weigh 625grams. The locking system is significantly better than other makes I could mention - adjusts and separates with ease. A few scuffs a...

Re: Tiderace Tour 17-S experiences

Thanks Chris, he did highlight that 13.5% was at fast pace. Having paddled my partners xplore it is clearly less effort than my own boat at a slow speed too but I wouldn’t know by how much, the difference is discernible though.

Thanks Jim, I hadn't thought about really pushing myself so that dawdling feels effortless, tsk! There must be off-water ways I can work on that as well, an equivalent to a rowing machine perhaps? Would be a good activity for these dark nights. I have an unpredictable and nomadic itinerary that mean...

Re: Tiderace Tour 17-S experiences

See if you can try a set of VE paddles..... Rog. Which in particular - and would you rate them above others for any reason in particular? Have found Epic relaxed touring carbon blades very comfortable but not terribly powerful. Shuna high angle caused shoulder pain... Time will tell with the Camanos.

Re: Tiderace Tour 17-S experiences

Thanks, it sounds pretty ideal other than turning sideways. Definitely going to organise a shot in a demo boat. In the meantime am experimenting with paddle size to see if that helps speed me up. From one extreme to the other I tried Werner Corryvreckans, so much more power but too big, will perseve...

Re: Tiderace Tour 17-S experiences

Thank you both for information and kind offer to try your boats. I've found there is a dealer not too far away so a test ride should be possible. Great to have the comparison to Romany and xplore-s stability, this is my main concern. I wonder is it as comforting as the Romany in a following sea? You...

Re: Tiderace Tour 17-S experiences

That’s a kind offer, thank you, where are you located?

If the hull is the same chances are they are indeed really similar to paddle. I agree stability is subjective and also really psychological I find!

Tiderace Tour 17-S experiences

Been advised by a credible source that this boat combines stability of Romany and speed/ease of paddling of a much faster boat. Am now curious... being curious can't do any harm, right? If you paddle one (specifically the small size as it seems kayaks vary considerably across sizes despite being the...
