    Possibly a contentious suggestion but if you are getting a sea kayak have considered using a Greenland paddle

    I get on a lot better with mine than with a standard European 2 ended paddle.

    Thanks 'E', I like the look of those, but I think I'll get the kayak first ;-) I've got a decent Ainsworth carbon touring paddle.

    There's a great looking Scott on Fleabay at the moment- £950 starting bid and I'm sure it's been listed a couple of times already. It's in Sandbach so maybe a bit further than you'd planned to travel but worth it to save£500 off the list price. Plenty of options for the other boats you mention either listed on the various FB canoe and kayak pages or on UKRGB. Good luck with the search!

    Thanks Andy. I was looking that ^^^, but I've realised my size for the Seabird Scott is over 17ft long, so I can't store it in my garage. I can go to just over 16ft. I guess I could build a rack outside... would the insurance still cover it???... thinking aloud...

    Meant to say other alternatives:
    North shore Atlantic plastic and composite get excellent reviews. And the outfitting on Wilderness boats is supposed to be outstanding - when funds allow I'll be having a serious look at the Zephyr!

    be aware I thought I was covered for stuff in my garage I got a lot of gear stolen and my insurance company said that they don't insure water craft goods so I'm down about £500 quid
