Wanted

Hi all

I am currently looking for a dagger GT or similar for my son of anyone has one lying around, he’s nearly 9 but to big for the kids boats so needs a small adult boat.

He has been using a friends GT and it fits well with room to grow.

Thanks

Re: What paddle do you use?

Re: Numb feet

Hi I used to have the same problem and couldn't for the life of me find the problem. The last resort was to buy a Jackson sweet cheeks.

Re: best footrest idea for boost - short legs

Hi

Can't think of anything for the foot rest but I use a contact adhesive spray from any motor factors, it's used for gluing head linings and sound deadening to cars, it's really good and I have used it in all my boats and the foam has never moved.

Hope this helps

Re: Burn 3

Hi all

I picked my burn 3 up at the weekend and spent to whole day fitting it out and what a comfy boat loads of room. I got the tingly feet syndrome when I had a bit of a paddle in it but I'm sure I will sort that out with some minor tweaks but glad I bit the bullet and brought one.

Thanks

Re: New Paddler - Paddle Advice Please

I started with a TNP rapa and it was ok but I ended up buying a werner powerhouse within 6 month and the difference was huge I had that for years, I now use a VE carbon cranked paddle and that's miles better than the werner, I will never have another paddle VE are fantastic.
