Werner splits - grease for easier splitting?

My Werner splits which I keep for emergencies don't get used very often, but when I do use them they're a nightmare to take apart. The other day I really thought I wasn't going to be able to dismount them. Has anyone else had this problem? A friend suggested greasing them with something - would that...

Non-toxic glue for kayak repair

I need to make some repairs to several kayaks - I was advised by a friend that Evo-stick is great and will hold even in wet conditions. But, on the packet it says 'harmful to aquatic organisms with long lasting effects'. So I feel very uncomfortable about using this in kayaks which will obviously be...

Re: Drysuit brand that last longest

Lots of helpful comment here. Will probably go for the Dam X then as reassured by all the good reviews and it sounds like it has staying power. I take the point about condensation, but my current Lomo isn't breathable and while it does get a bit damp sometimes, never to the extent that it makes me c...

Drysuit brand that last longest

I am in the market for a new drysuit, and my priority is getting one that will last well. I bought a Lomo a couple of years ago and it has been great for what I paid, but now I've had it about 2 years water now comes gushing in at every seam. Does anyone have any thoughts on which drysuit brands las...

Mamba 8.5 and med Karnarli shell for sale

I have two boats for sale. The first is a Dagger Mamba 8.5. It has a split in the cockpit rim - not currently welded but could be. Location of the split means it doesn't let any water in. Boat is missing hip pads and footplate nuts, and backrest slightly loose but otherwise in good condition. The hu...
