Re: Outfitting a van

After much trial and error my van evolved into a camper where I can get at everything without detroying the van to get at it. Also, we often stop at aires when travalling in France and need to get the double bed up/and away without fuss. Most of our cooking is done outside therefore the cooker is re...

Re: VHF radio

I also have the standard horizon. I like the fact that you can buy a spare battery pack for it which takes aa batteries.

Re: Sea kayaking paddle buddies wanted Kent.

Jeremy, cheers for the heads up. Have my first coaching session with Rob this Thursday. In my own boat :-)

Really struggling to find paddle buddies in this area so have set up this FB page to try and widen the pool.

Re: Wanted - P&H Capella 166 'not' Venture Capella.

The P&H boat is 'apparently' a little bit stiffer than the Venture boat.

But, after visiting Kent Canoes since my original post, I now have the Venture Capella 166 and I am more than pleased with it.

Re: VW Transporters

Not sure if this will work as I'm still getting to grips with a chromebook, but here's a couple of photo's on my Facebook page. I mounted an alloy tube at the top of my bike rack to stop the kayak damaging the paintwork when I'm loading it.. I simply lean the kayak against this then push it up onto ...

Re: Looking to try some Kayaks - Kent

Thanks Nigel. I guessed it would take a wee bit of getting used to and yes it does have a skeg. I'm getting some instruction from Rob at South East Kayaking in a couple of weeks.

Re: Which kayak to choose. Moken 12, Tootega Kinetic 100

[quote="T4Mac"]I had the Triumph 13 and think it is a great solid boat for the money. I wouldn't waist money on the angler version, instead I would adapt the standard boat to how you want it.

Still have all my safety gear just looking for an appropriate Kayak. Hopefully a few more might get on here. Cannot believ...

Re: Looking to try some Kayaks - Kent

Yes. I spoke to Sam who was very helpful which allowed me to add the Dagger 145L, Sratos14.5 and the Venture Capella to list of possibles. He only has a demo Capella tho.

I had the Triumph 13 and think it is a great solid boat for the money. I wouldn't waist money on the angler version, instead I would adapt the standard boat to how you want it. I particularly noticed how dry it was compared with other peoples boats. Stable platform and had a very comfy seat. I had a...

Re: Looking to try some Kayaks - Kent

Thanks Myssak I shall see if something more local crops up first. I should add that I'm after a plastic boat which will get dragged over some smooth rocks and shingle. I am going to give myself a couple of months to find a second hand boat, as I don't want to lose too much money if I want to upgrade.
