Re: Flat Water Paddling Partner West Midlands

If you want to come to Seaford for a weekend on the south coast let me know. Its quite scenic but subject to the usual chop and winds so I often go up river. There's ...

Re: Repair tapes

I've used Tear aid on a dive vest bladder and dry bags, it seems to work. Also have used it for years on special seating, Roho air cushions. Just make sure it's clean. Some duck tapes degrade.
