Old kayak sold to a chap from the next village thanks to Mrs D's Felchbook ad.

New kayak ordered.

New one is nothing exciting, but with a 150kg payload capacity ives me a bit more freeboard and room for error than the 120kg of the Riber, as I was perilously close to that one.

Which river will you use it on?

Went on ebay based on looking at this thread

Cost of secondhand canoes and stuff it just silly at the moment!!!

Although I am tempted - the idea of a canoe with a sail and daggerboard plus a fishing rod sounds like my idea of heaven
well - almost - add a trailer to tow it to the river by ebike and I'm there!!!!

Are inflatables allowed….. we’ve used it on the Leeds/Liverpool canal loads and on Ullswater which was awesome. I’ve also got a sit on rigid kayak which has been lent to me on a more or less permanent basis, the owner just wants to use it once a year on a camping trip.

Only issue is that I’ve been unable to get it into the roof of my VW T5 due to shoulder/collarbone injuries but I’m hoping to give it another go in the next week or so.

Seller's market it is!

But, looking on the bright side, the suppliers of boats haven't been profiteering, and have kept prices where they were. Mind you, it took me a year to get a boat from a US supplier, who have more business than they know what to do with.
