Re: Repairable?

Wouldn't be expensive to repair, would probably look pretty decent with some tlc and defo cheaper than buying a brand new one.

Re: Inflatable Kayaks

If you put the seats down I bet you'd fit a play boat in a Fiat 500 ;-) I can't say I've paddled an inflatable but Seveylor have a decent reputation and if they come in at your price point then you know your'll be getting a decent product.

Re: Inflatable Kayaks

Sevylors paddle OK but having a separate bladder inside their skin is a hassle after paddling as you have to take it out and hang it out to dry to stop it going mouldy. I have a two to three seater Gumotex which is single skin and tough as old boots. You could get one of their lightweight single se...

Inflatable Kayaks

I am yet still to buy my first Kayak and was looking at the hard shell kayaks until I realised I would have to be spending just as much on a good roof rack system, because I have a Fiat 500 which has a very short roof there is only one system that will do the job but it'll cost me about £350, so an ...

Re: Canal tunnrls

That's a very good point Not Dave, what happens if half way through the tunnel though you're met by an on coming barge? I'm thinking that it's probably just safer to stay out of the tunnels lol

Ah ok, so I guess getting in touch with British Waterways would be a good Idea before venturing out, thanks Mike

Canal tunnrls

I always thought that kayaking through the tunnels on our canal net work was ok as long as you were lit up and following a barge, I have however just watched a video on YouTube of just such a thing but the kayakers were caught by British Waterwars and told to vacate the tunnel. So I'm just wondering...
