Re: Tent with a big porch?

Coleman Tatra 2 3.4kg or Tatra 3 3.75kg.

I used to have the 3 it's got a big porch, is freestanding, pitches outer first or as one. I could put my bike in the porch!

Re: Wanted Liquidlogic Remix69

Have you tried posting on the Used Kayaks UK and Canoes and Kayaks for Sale Facebook pages?

I put up exactly the same request last week and within 10 minutes was offered a Liquid Logic Big Hoss and a Remix 69 (which I bought) so worth a pop.

Advice re Necky Jive 8.10

Hi I'm after a bit of advice re the above boat please. I'm a sea kayaker and have almost zero experience of river running but have had a few goes and enjoyed it. One of the boats I used was a Necky Jive 8.10 which seemed to fit me very well (5'10 85kg). I can get this boat for £50. It's from a frien...

Re: Valley Sirona

I have a Sirona RM, a Gemini SP RM and a Cetus MV. I tend to tell people think of the Sirona as a Gemini on speed. It's certainly quite a bit faster, and I feel it's just as maneuverable and as others have said it's very skeg dependent, but does track better with a load. It's become my everyday boat...

WANTED DAGGER STRATOS 14.5 S

As it says. The smaller of the two Stratos models.

I'm based in Cheddar, Somerset, so within a couple of hours travelling would be good. A bit more for a near perfect one. Saw one on Ebay but asking a bit too much for a used one of these.

Thanks

Re: Boats for "Easyish" Charity Challenges

Just back from a first paddle in a Stratos 14.5S so the smaller one. I paddled it alongside a Valley Sirona. Took my youngest son along who is a novice paddler and we swapped between the two boats. I'm 85kgs and he's about 65kgs I would say it's perfect for what I want it for. Turns even quicker tha...

Re: Recommendations for a thin hood / skull cap ?

I like the Lomo skull cap. Fleece lined with a soft shell outer.
Yes it lets the water and then out again but it's warm even when wet and windproof. And cheap as chips. I've got 5 or 6 now keep them in all my boats and in my car etc.

Re: 4* out. 'Paddlesport leader' in.

My understanding is Paddlesport Leader is a new award below that of 4* and is aimed at 3* paddlers to enable them to lead groups primarily in the club environment and in sheltered waters. 4* is now Sea Kayak Leader but the syllabus and assessment hasn't changed, similarly 5* is now Advanced Sea Kaya...

Thanks Irish Sea, I did think about both those boats (my first boat was an Easky 15) but they are considerably more expensive than what we can get the Stratos for. I read the post mentioned and noted the "tracking problem" was in the L version paddling across the harbour, so presumably with no load,...

Hi Sue,

Hope you're getting on ok with the Gemini.
Wish you told me when you were here - I had a lightly used plastic Gemini SP as well, weight difference is negligible.
