Re: Infinity Odyssey 375 Inflatable Kayak spares?

Hi, from you're description I would say the 375 has an I- Beam floor, [ Iron beam]. Usually when these let go as yours has, they are more or less impossible to repair, or certainly beyond economic viability, and the ability of most home repair paddlers to cope with. It might be worth looking out Pal...

Re: How do I re-proof a drysuit?

I can't help with chemical re-proofing as I've never had any success with it, whether it be on tents, motorbike clothing or drysuits/cags. However, it's worth investigating whether you've got individual holes in your suit, as opposed to the material going porous. I've been buying used military drys...

Just did mine a couple of weeks ago. I used my own [ older ] kayak, though to be honest most of the people with me used our club boats. Of as much importance is the kayak being kitted out with enough air bags to aid recovery. You don't have to roll it for 2* so just being able to paddle, forwards, b...

Re: Foot entrapment

Ah, hence one our coaches on the Dee recently bellowing to a young paddler who had just taken a swim " Don't walk , don't walk, swim to an eddy". Potentially life saving advice.
Glad to hear you're still around and able to dwell on it, and pass on some useful advice.

Re: Would you fit two creek boats in the back of this?

I have the T5, I would say for travelling, yes the shorter creekers will fit in because there's no bulkhead fitted. However, you would need a cover for the seat backs, to stop the boats chaffing at the upholstery, and, they would have to come out for sleeping, so would need securing to something out...

Re: Inflatable kayak some white water and touring - I’m clueless

All good suggestions there,I would add that nearly all of those mentioned are a fabric skinned tube. This may be an issue if you're travelling around by car. Ideally the kayak needs to be really dry before putting away for any length of time otherwise the dreaded mould sets in. The Sea Eagle [ cheap...

More expensive, but a possible solution might be the Gumotex Twist in Nitrilon light. They weigh in at about 12.5 kg. They can be sourced for under £400.00, but you would need 2 of them. They do fold up small, and carry about 180kg each.Their rubber coated inside and out so are wipe dry, and reasurr...
