Hi, I'm new to this place and relatively new to paddling. I tried a little in my youth but went away to have a 'responsible' life and have recently re-discovered the joys. I even went and took a paddling skills course with proadventure in Llangollen. I am currently planning to buy a boat and have seen some lovely looking craft at swift water canoes (I love wood) I wonder if the experienced members have any advice to offer when selecting?
The plan is to buy a canoe that'll enable me and my twelve year old son to do some camping and paddling for a few days here and there on lakes slow flowing rivers, though I need to get some practice with my J stroke first
