    So, unless it's been removed (which I think would require an Act of Parliament) there still is.
    I understand why that puts people off paddling, it puts me off paddling - but we shouldn't let them...

    I hear Al has a new go-faster device for his canoe. What it does is a secret, all I can say it was invented by James Dalzell.

    I don't know of a general summary of tidal information, so here's a quick summary:

    Sea level rises and falls as a result of the gravity of the moon and the sun. Each cycle is about 12 hours 50...

    The levels aren't much affected at the moment - it takes a lot of rain to bring it up in summer, and the Dee headwaters are regulated. I don't know why the level peaks occur in the level graph linked...

    According to the Novacraft website, a Tuffstuff Bob weighs 22.7kg. While that's a lot lighter than some, there are lighter boats, eg, Wenona Prism Ultralight is 15kg (but the new price is about 1000...

    If you paint a red boat green, any scratches will show up red and look really scruffy. And if you're not taking the boat anywhere it might get scratched, you don't need Royalex and would be better...

    I hadn't really noticed the paddles. It's almost worth the current bid price just for the paddles! Given the manufacturer, and the paddles, it might be quite light. At one point, the rules for slalom...

    The listing doesn't state the width, but I've paddled boats of that general appearance and they are quite tippy compared the current models from Hou, Venture, Novacraft, Old Town, etc.

    CFD works in Latin or Gaelic, DFD only in English?

    I thought, being the expensive ones, they'd have come with a case?

    I've used my Exped in a DD hammock, and it worked fairly well. There is a tendency for the mat to pop out of the side at one end, so your footbox should take the lateral pressure off and avoid that....

    I've had two Exped down-filled mats. Both were comfortable and gave very good insulation, but failed on durability. My Downmat DL, with the built in valve, ended up with all the down in the tube on...

    Painting fibreglass is usually tricky to get a good result; if you're not careful it flakes off in patches in a year or two and looks worse than it did before. Ordinary paint can also be a nuisance...

    My guess is that the gelcoat will be the same as Tuffstuff, but the glass will be a bit more vulnerable to bigger hits, and a bit heavier. Smaller impacts won't flex the glass so the gelcoat won't...
