Selling a new P&H Virgo - bought in May this year. I just can't get into kayaking. Used twice on the river Avon - deep water - so it is unmarked. Has the mini deck hatch and skeg. Colour turquoise, with yellow deck lines and grey elastics. This cost me £1225.00 plus delivery, so I'll make it easy a...

Re: P&H Virgo

Okay, so I bought one in Core-Lite X and spent a few days fettling - mostly lowering the seat to the maximum, which is only about 8mm - before a first paddle today. This is the first time I've ever paddled a kayak and felt that it was made just for me. Great fit (95kg / 5'10"), quick and nimble. Eas...

Re: Sea Kayak in Africa

have to plan it according to the safest parts of the coast As CeeGee said, it's not doable without serious back-up. I've driven unsupported around much of the southern African coast, from Dar es Salaam to Namibia - some of those seas are huge. That guy in the video 'only' did 2,000km. I'd say you h...

Re: Wanted: Wavesport Hydra or P&H Virgo

Might consider something similar - looking for a day boat for rivers, estuaries and tootling around the coast. Not too long, but with a bit of thigh room... competent 15st paddler.

Re: Is vhf course needed

Gordon - why the resistance to doing an operator's course? I come from sailing small boats and wouldn't dream of taking to the sea without being fully compliant with the law and fully conversant with the use of a VHF. Sorry, but taking a half-hearted approach to any aspect of safety doesn't bode wel...

Re: Kayak or Canoe for larger person?

That sounds odd. I’m 16 stone, I’ve paddled the Expression 11 and it paddled well with no issues like that (though 16 stone is definitely well at the top end of its design weight). The Fusion comes in three sizes, I have the medium and I’ve done 12+ mile paddles in it with no issues with a lack of ...

Re: P&H Virgo

Hi Simon. I've been 'away' canoeing for a while, but thinking of getting another (yet another) sea-ish kayak. How would you think the Virgo compare to the Hydra, in terms of fit for a larger person? I'm about 15 stone, going on 14 stone, if I can lay off the chocolate. I liked the Hydra - it fitted ...

Re: 'Goolie' thongs

I might be banned for redirecting you, but since you've had zero response here, you might want to ask on the 'Song of the Paddle' forum.

Been canoeing for 20 years and I've never heard of a goolie thong. Sounds like the thing Le Chiffre might have used on James Bond in Casino Royale.
