Re: Coromandel - best place to launch near hot water beach?

Re: Need Another Tub

Also a great little yak. My wife first had one when we paddled from Kiteriteri to Tonga Island Marine reserve, she was always comfortable even when the sea built a bit. Admitting also, she likes the Pro 400 Lite bit more room to wriggle. Enjoy as I am sure you shall. :y:
