Wanted: Wenonah Prospector or Argosy

Anyone selling a Wenonah 15ft Prospector or an Argosy? Any layup considered. I know they are different beasts, but I've owned both, so I'm aware of that. Must be in excellent condition and within 100 miles of Cheltenham, but I'll travel further for one that's next to new. Please PM. Thanks! PS. The...

Wanted - Valley Sirona, or similar

Anyone got a Sirona 16.1 that they want, or need, to part with? Composite preferred, but RM might do. I'd prefer one in tip-top condition. Might consider something similarly versatile, for coastal day paddling and improving - I'm 90kg 5'10" with chunky thighs. (I had a Sirona last year - liked it, ...

Re: Sea kayak categories

I'm not sure categorisation of gear can (or should) go much beyond generalities. Quite often, when you start anything new you don't really know in which direction it'll take you; being too prescriptive might mislead the uninformed into overlooking something that might be perfectly suitable for their...

Re: Rockpool Taran 18

30% off the RRP is not a sensible offer. In fact it's a little bit cheeky, given that I've put my own money into a project intended to help other paddlers. So don't waste your time with silly offers - it won't happen! Cheers, Rick Since it was used for a good cause, I'm surprised you had to pay ful...

Re: Cameras and salt water

I wouldn't bother with an expensive camera for kayaking trips. Almost any dedicated modern waterproof camera will do the job. I think we need to be honest about this... otherwise we all end up with 50mpx DSLRs for taking what are effectively snapshots. FWIW, I use a pair of Fuji X-T1s for work, but ...
