Re: Piel Island parking

There is a car park or two on the road to Roa island not far from where you would launch. I'd expect them to be pretty safe to be honest.

Re: Recommendations on a summer cap for sea kayaking?

I used a couple of crocodile clips and a length of paracord to make a retaining strap. Clips on either my winter or summer cap

Re: Crabs

Big boa type screw gate will generally clip onto anything securely. Depends what it's for though. I see no need for locking if it's just for towing on flat water

Re: The Lakes...

The island on Derwentwater is St Herbert's. Derwent island has a house on. We paddled there last Sunday and on arriving the NT guy advised us not to block in two cars who'd been on the island over night. Now seeing as they own the island I'm guessing it's accepted as long as users are responsible. S...

Hope you got a good price John. We've just placed an order for a new set. Last ones did us 7 years on salt water and lots of abuse. Can't argue with that

Re: replacing deck bungee

I cut the rope on an angle and melted the end to give a needle like point to aid threading. I used rope though as I was told that's better for touring. Still got the odd bungee bit for securing paddles

Re: Ainsworth touring paddles.. Thoughts?

I had a demo and liked the blades but can't justify the cost personally especially looking at the Ainsworth as £200 in comparison. 633cm2 is a fairly medium blade isn't it?

That said I haven't bit the bullet yet so my decision isn't made

Re: Best Dry suit?

I can vouch for typhoon customer service. Emailed them about a leaky sock. They repaired it for free and pressure tested the suit whist they had it.

Have a look at second hand kit as well. Even a leaky drysuit is probably better than a wetsuit especially with good base layers

So little information. It would benefit you to give a rough idea of what the big kit is and where you are. Plus a rough price for the bigger kit.

Re: Marathon Inertia

But the heavier boat would be lower in the water and hence have a different hull shape in essence. Surely that would slow the boat down. It's also often recognised that length of the boat has an impact on the speed it can go.
