    We went today. Good trip, Nick's a very attentive instructor and he had an additional instructor for a group of 6 boats (IIRC). A total of about 8-9 miles paddling, which was easy going out with the...

    I think that it's aimed more at the casual/non-paddler tbh, but it includes hire of decent canoe, all gear, and a qualified instructor in a small group, so given we're still very firmly classed as...

    Starts from Totnes at 10.30, following the tide out and back at 5. Company called Winding River IIRC, they call it a paddle to the pub and back, which had a certain attraction.

    We're paddling the Dart on Tuesday, by coincidence, with one of the local companies. Thought that would be smart, having never paddled anything tidal before.

    Assuming others are happy with their covers when delivered I think that the supplier's details would be worth publicising for others to order in future.

    In fact one has the Cricklade - Lechlade stretch as a recommended boat-free paddle, but cautions that there are trees overhanging (I was looking only a few days ago for a place where our friends can...

    Why not speak to one of the canoe hire companies in Lechlade - there are 2 or 3 and I'm sure they'd be happy to share up to date information.

    Agree, waving 9ft of highly-conductive carbon fibre around in an electrical storm isn't conducive to a long life. Mind you that's child's play when compared to the Guide's 15ft carbon push pole...

    The spacers are to hide bolt threads - it'll be next to the front door, and if they are cut correctly then the inner bolt will lock against it. Or at least that's how I rationalised it - the wall is...

    I guess so - put 4 in, adjust bolts until the box is level, mark and cut to that level, cut spacers to correct length and reassemble. Is that what you would do?

    As some may guess from my name I'm a fisherman, visiting the Tropics to fish as often as I can. We are off the water asap at the very first sign, always, despite having travelled halfway around the...
  21. Small piece(s) of marine ply anyone?

    Hi, one of those slightly daft requests, but bear with me!

    We have a small issue in that our oldest dog Dexter likes to 'meet' the post as it comes through the letterbox...to the point where on...
