Many thanks

My thanks to yak solo 333 for kindly and very patiently guiding me through my first day back on the water for over a year.It must have been boring for him to go so slow.The endurance is gone and the lungs struggled but it was on the water and a beautiful morning.The outriggers worked ok and have now...

outriggers for my sof

I have built a set of outriggers for my sof.I will trial them sat hopefully.They can pivot in the fore and aft motion allowing the kayak to get through the surf with much less strain on the mounting system and kayak but hopefully still providing the extra stability I now need because of the vertigo....

Old man of the sea now just an old man

Sold my kayak and all my gear.Due to deteriorating health I will just be a bystander, but still avid reader of the forum. So keep the diy coming to keep me interested.It all went to a good home so i am sure some of you will recognize it out on the water in the near future.
