Re: For sale: Stealth Fisha 500

Some folks are never happy A...

Re: Sounder for kayak angling.

Sounds like he needs to upgrade to some other fishing kayak We are still waiting for one with a scupper mount but atm only come on short plastic or pedal kayaks.

Re: Safety - EPIRB/PLB, flares, essential?

Just a reminder with PLBs then when they say must be above water, antenna upright and the gps sender at the front open to the air they mean it. In a panic situation when you are cold and weather is rough, it is easy to overlook this and thinking help is on the way, and they just cant get a proper lo...

Re: Re-entry onto a Kayak - Options?

When side mounting in windy conditions, best if you have the yak down wind, so it is drifting away from you. Makes getting legs to surface easier. On the other side it wants to drift over your legs. Imaging it being a float/kick board used for teaching people to swim

Re: Kayak.....really

Keep in mind, short of structural failure these things dont swamp or sink, and paddlers are leashed to them. So if they fall out they just climb back on and continue. Paddlers will be dressed for submersion. They weigh between 10 & 20kg typically

Not sure what yaks they were, but if Sit ins then doing an eskimo roll would be something one must know how to do especially in those conditions.
Ocean Racing skis, busted one looks similar to an epic. So sit on tops.

Re: Kayak.....really

capsizing as such is not really an issue in these, its akin to falling off a surf board, they expect to and they just climb back on again

Re: Kayak.....really

support craft would only be for organised races. Experienced elite paddlers would think nothing of going out in 2m waves and 40+knot sustained conditions. Much the same as surfers deliberately go out in big waves. As you say could be a craft malfunction as one of them looks snapped in half. Bottom l...

Re: Kayak.....really

I will be the devils advocate here, going by the look of the "kayaks" they are actually ocean racing surf ski's. That is they would have been very experienced to even paddle them, and they are designed for these conditions. Not saying they didn't bite off more than they could handle....but they woul...
