New boats worth it?

Hi

Just thought I'd garner some views on whether it's worth splashing out a small fortune on a new boat or try and get a good deal on a second hand one. I've only had one kayak and it's erased me well but now looking at getting another. All views welcome.

Re: Bass Strait Crossing - Video

Everything seems to be awesome these does but this film truly is. Probably the best film of a sea kayaking expedition I've seen. Absolutely fantastic - and I'm definitely going to visit Tasmania.

Three piece kayak

Hi I'm considering buying a three-piece kayak, specifically a Rockpool GT, and wondered if anyone has one and would be prepared to answer the following: 1. Is there any discernible paddling difference between the three piece and the traditional boat? 2. Can the clips be damaged, do they every come l...

Re: Paddle recommendations?

I have a set of Werner Shuna's - glass blade and carbon shaft and a set of full carbon, cranked shaft VE blades. I prefer the Shunas because they have a bit more give and place less stress on my joints. In hindsight, I should have chosen the VE paddles with a glass blade (if they make them). The loc...

Wanted: Rockpool Isel/ Romany LV? or any LV kayak

Hi

Just reflagging this - looking for either a Rockpool Isle or Romany LV - happy to consider most low volume kayaks. It's for my 14-year-old son - who's one of those wiry types - so it must be a a low volume kayak.

Thanks.

Wanted LV sea kayak

Hi

I'm after a low volume sea kayak for my son - either plastic or composite. He's paddled a Rockpool Isle, which he loved, so something of that ilk would be great. I live in the south east but occasionally level to Anglesey and Cornwall.

Thanks.

Re: Tent with a big porch?

I use a Hilleberg Staika - it's exactly what you seem to be after. Used it on expeditions in Norway and Alaska. It's pricey but worth every penny. It is super strong and completely free standing. They occasionally come up on eBay. Well worth the investment. http://gb.hilleberg.com/EN/tent/black-labe...

Hi

Just wondered if anyone is familiar with the Lettmann Ergonomic Pro Sea paddle or whether it has been reviewed on this site. Looks very interesting, but pretty pricey.
