Hello there.

I posted a whole bunch of stuff a while back, and was pretty much pegged to buy a Solway Dory and dive.. or paddle, headlong into things. Thanks for the enthusiasm you folks offered at the time!

Since all that and the other water under my personal bridge, me and Ms Rendelf recently made a plywood canoe. We'd like to take it out on the Tweed and play for a day.

We've both paddled a bit before, but not loads. We have buoyancy aids to wear, but not for the canoe.

Are there any sections you folks might recommend where we can play around? Probably should end near a pub so I can go and get the car ^^ . Portaging isn't a problem.
