Hello all,
Attached a couple of photos of a Sissons kayak, built in his Nelson factory in the early 1990s.
I would like help in identifying it please.
I know it says 'Puyesgur' across the black band but I did that when I did a lot of re-glassing to repair the decks when I bought the boat a couple of months back. I was told it was a Puysegur, but that boats measurements of 4.6m long and 0.62m beam do not fit my boat.
This kayak is built of kevlar, 18kg, 4.98m including rudder, 4.87m without and beam of 0.59m. This boat has a Sissons certificate of verification sandwiched into the laminate in the cockpit and has the appearance of a slightly shorter, slight fatter Noordkap.
Any assistance appreciated.

No pics. The system says it doesn't like the jpeg format. Sorry

Maybe rename the file to 8 alpha numeric characters [.jpg] ?

Thanks for your reply.
Renamed files but get the message 'The file format you are trying to attach is invalid'.
I am using an android tablet if that makes any difference.

The site wouldn't accept your pictures as they were too big by the look of it.

Running Linux, there's a very good FREE programme for resizing.
