    I’ve paddled the Apache 17 round the Cheshire Ring, almost as slowly as Potty. I’m afraid I’ve now sold it and bought a lovely, comfortable Gumotex with the proceeds.

    There are a couple of...

    I think most likely guillemots and razor bills, as previously stated, but in the winter puffins lose their brightly coloured bill and hang around out at sea.

    I’m not overly impressed with any of the I kayaks on Amazon. Some of the Sevylors and Advanced Elements might be ok. Is there a way that you can sell this voucher to someone and get a Gumotex boat?

    You can plot distances using Bing maps, which you can view as Ordnance Survey maps. I suspect that this function only works on a computer as opposed to a tablet or phone.

    Either a Pakraft, or similar or a Gumotex Twist?

    I think all inflatable boats are great in the right place and conditions. A better quality boat will allow you to access a wider variety of places and conditions.

    My inflatable is bright red. I...

    i think the unfortunate victims of the storm were using a selfie stick on top of a mountain, in a thunderstorm. So not doing that would be good advice.

    What about flying a drone, with a bit of...

    Don’t forget the Royal Military Canal. Easy access from Hythe Light Railway station. Not quite a slipway, but a very low to the water deck. Quieter and arguably nicer west towards Rye, access might...

    I really like our Hypercamp Eldorado, but unpitched it is the weight and size of a medium teenager but won’t walk on its own. Good for car camping, very waterproof and strong in wind. It has the...

    Yes, the standard water and toilet key. Possibly the best 7 quid I’ve ever spent. I wonder if you can open Tower Bridge or the Thames Barrier with it?

    Great trip, thank you for organising, Martin.

    We particularly enjoyed the fitness training at the end! Definitely the biggest waves I’ve ever seen on a canal.

    I’ve used a few different pumps with mine, most of them seem to work. One of them, a Decathlon one, had a slightly too long nozzle, which meant that the non return valve on the boat didn’t do the non...

    I use a wind paddle on my Gumotex Solar and a sevylor 200sx I had a few years ago. Works really well. They’re pretty cheap now, what have you got to lose?

    I’ve done all the shoots in a Gumotex Solar with a skeg fitted, both tandem and solo with no problems. The flex of an inflatable probably helps with skeg preservation.
