    I know THIS has been kicking around for a while on UKRGB, but I've only just found it and it made me laugh.

    For a kayak's covered deck, water-tight cockpit and double-bladed paddle are not just aids to effective flotation and propulsion: they are also, and above all, the jewels of moral responsibility
    I wonder if anyone has pointed out to the journalist that Darwin was paddling a kayak when he went missing?

    Default Inaccurate?

    I wouldn't say inaccurate!

    "Until their creed becomes anchored to a coherent structure of beliefs and values, there is no knowing what the world's canoeists, cut dangerously adrift from all notion of decency and floating free of the law on the world's waterways, will do."

    Sounds just fine to me

    I really like the idea of being "cut dangerously adrift from all notion of decency and floating free of the law on the world's waterways" Bring it on
