    I've still not read the blog but have flicked through the pics a few times now.

    For me the bottom line is that it was an amazing trip with a great bunch of guys across a beautiful landscape.

    I'm in no rush to go out and buy one but they certainly are a cracking boat. I too was very surprised how well the Ally managed the Sweden to Norway trip. [emoji6][emoji6]

    It was a fab trip with a great company. Marks vid certainly gives a small flavour for the area we travelled through. The scenery was stunning and totally brutal all at the same time.

    sb canoes

    I've paddled them all and I disagree with this. The 16 probably does have less primary stability than a 15 but, I found the 15 to have far more stability than the tribe. The tribe is a faster boat in...
