Re: latex or silicone :D

As no one replied I went to my local hobby craft ant bought a 500ml bottle of latex. I shall report how it goes.

Re: Bamford to Baslow - Peak District

Hi. It all depends on how deep the rivers are. lakes and canals might be your best option with an inflatable. there tends to be rather a lot of sharp rocks around here.
