Re: Stern heavy !

If they're enjoying themselves and they get back to the beach intact then whats the big deal? People spend far too much time sticking their beaks into other peoples lives, when a cursory examination of their own would usually find all sorts to criticise. Leave them be.

I just messaged him about it, he said he used a wide-angle lens to get the whole boat in the frame 🤷🏻‍♂️

Re: The new jetski?

Theres a 4MPH speed limit on the canals for "power driven vessels" , less on areas that are succeptible to wash damage, so itd be no quicker than walking down the towpath for commuters.

Looks to my eye like the last owner has been a bit daft and plonked his behind down in the seeat way to hard/quickly with the kayak has been on the ground.

Re: Condition of new SOT Kayaks...is this the norm?

I've recently bought a Riber sit on top. Nothing flash, only £300, but it came in a plastic bag, swathed in bubble wrap, and once I'd fought my way through the packaging the plastic was brand new unmarked and virgin, as if it had plopped out the mould that morning.

Re: Kayak or Canoe for larger person?

I'm 6'5" and 19 stone. I also have very limited mobility in my right shoulder, which makes extractions and rolls impossible. For the casual user/explorer of my dimensions and limitations my sit on Riber works nicely. Its a lot better than not being to paddle at all.
