Re: Romany Classic and Atlantic lv, the same but different?

The club I used to paddle with had more shorelines than any other boat which was testament to its abilities. I coached many beginners in the club using my wife’s shoreline simply because it was kind to beginners but had the ability to perform well in the hands of an experienced paddler. At that tim...

Re: Boris says...

Re: Annoyed, fed up. BC don't get it?

just look at them nod and carry on ;) LOL There are estimated to be 42,700 miles of river in the U.K. but only 1,400 have a clear and undisputed right of public access.

Re: Romany Classic and Atlantic lv, the same but different?

The Atlantic LV started life as the Shoreline, quite a long time ago, it had just two small round hatches, newer versions played with large fibreglass hatches (shoreline fuego) and has now settled on its current deck layout, in my experience the Romany felt very different, unfortunately they seemed...
