Appropriate clothing for colder months can be aquired along the way, but a correct for purpose and well fitted PFD could be your best purchase, ;) Some would add a VHF radio to that as well.(along with the certif...

I feel I've wasted much of their time when I go in and talk the ears off the sales staff and walk out without spending anything so I kinda owe them anyway :D Warranty returns, backup info, a...

Re: Ocean Kayak - Tackle Storage Pods - What would you pay?

There are times I long for a return to working in fibreglass ! I would have had front we'll , centre well , little box in front of seat and rear fish box all in glass and foam on the 440, but I never would have got the thing up the sand because of the shear weight of it all! :$ Sometimes Systema wor...
