" I really like the atmosphere of support and fun..."

Nice choice by charleston 14, thank you.

Re: Gone very quiet

While I prefer not to use FB, it might be worth considering a UKRGB page. Links to here could be made easily. At least that would give a foot in both media forms. I find this site so very useful and informative, I would not like to see it become defunct.

Re: FS Dagger Stratos 14.5 S

I'm getting close to buying either the stratos, the Hydra or the Virgo. I would appreciate any advice - I will be trying them m...

Re: Authorised personnel

I have used this site as a watching brief, to see what it might be like as a community, when I can afford to begin sea kayaking. I was impatient to start training and I still am. However, the delay has given me the opportunity to enjoy and benefit from some articles in the archives. Especially one i...

Re: Sevylor Canyon SC320 inflatable Repair

Just a thought, try putting some food dye in the water that you put inside your craft. If you choose a colour that contrasts with it, you might have more chance of finding the leak. The food dyes are water soluble, so no harm in trying.

Have a look at the 'Lomo' site. They have a wide range and fair prices.

Re: Marine Biopolymers - Kelp Harvesting
