    As others have said, there are good and bad inflatables. As a rule, I avoid anything with "Sevylor" written on it. the more expensive Gumotex boats have a good reputation, but I have had plenty of...

    I still see Canyons in the shops, but the new models have the central nylon floor cover attached by velcro to the sides, rather than joined at the bottom seam. I don't know whether this is an...

    Don't waste your money. Every year Sevylor has advertised a "new" model of the Canyon, with the suggestion that this time it won't leak. And every year the reports roll in that it's just the same old...

    Ah, yes. Flaming useless things. I'm amazed these are still on sale.

    I made one for my little Intex K1 out of a bit of ply and Brio wooden Meccano. Retractable and everything. It worked brilliantly until some dippy little Tarquin tripped over it and broke it in half...

    Probably wise: you can put wax on over stormsure if needed, but not the other way round.

    From the various things I've tried on my two boats, I think the candle has proved most effective on the...

    I ended up caking Barbour paste wax into the seam and for good measure rubbed a candle along the stitching until it was thoroughly gunked up. Cheaper, and less obtrusive than most of the sealant...

    Don't forget a BCU ticket is valid for the Broads as well.

    Hickling Broad is pretty much wall-to-wall reeds and, as with most of the big broads, what's good for sailing can make for tough...

    On second thoughts, having seen a Tahiti out of the box and close up, I'm not so sure. A bit flimsy for my liking.

    Before contemplating any kind of access campaign, I think we all need to bear in mind that people are paying a lot of money for boat hire, permits etc for a day's fly fishing on Rutland Water. They...

    Strewth! As you say nearly 500 for a potential real pain of a boat. I have to say, since getting a big old plastic Pelican bathtub I'm missing using the Canyons less and less with every outing. No...
  15. Norfolk Canoes: 15% off everything.

    I had their last open canoe off them on Friday (a Pelican Colorado for 485 - didn't need too much thinking about at that price), but the lad in the...

    Hi 789 - interesting post. This is all a bit hazy for me now as the Canyons have been sat in their bags since last Autumn so I haven't yet had a chance to test the last gasp efforts I made at sealing...

    Looks like you got a good result. I suppose you could give the Canyon a close look and send it back on the basis of seam tape not properly stuck down over the floor 'gusset'...SMwhistle

    Sevylor Canyon

    Any chance of a Sevylor Canyon review thread? It looks to be gaining popularity as an alternative to the Backcountry.

    Good stuff. Once you get it, check all the seam stitching on the underside and that the seam tape is stuck down properly on the inside. Also, check the tape on the inside around the skeg attachment....

    Yup, thumb on top. Simplest and best solution IMHO. It also avoids any potential thumb versus gunwhale nastiness. And lower hand right down to the water (unless there are pyranhas about).

    Maybe just me being over cautious, but I would be a bit wary of clipping onto the bonnet lid. Putting strain on the bonnet release catch could lead to a impromptu brown trouser moment at speed. A...

    That's pretty much on the nail. I got a pair for the family and have enjoyed using them this year. But beware of poorly attached seam tape on some boats, leading to that cold, wet feeling around the...
