Ah yes - furthermore a quick trawl on the forum identifies that the similarities between ASIS and Ballistic have already been spotted!

How do you get on with the inflatable kayak - often thought it might be an idea to get one - does it compare well to sit on's?

They are 'ok' not as fast as sit on /plastic ones - but for the odd bit of fun paddling OK for me & so much easier to store ! Lots more storage inside as you are far more 'in it' than 'onit' , and much much harder to fall out of/ off of which is good for me & the kids !

I've 2 - welcome to try one out anytime - just abit cold for paddling at the moment

SR4 Nearly Complete

Here is a pic taken of the SR4 yesterday on the River Tamar. Just waiting for the back cushion and a new seat (more padded) and then she will be complete.

I often think about getting something else but i know i would miss her too much and especially as she would be difficult to replace? For what i need out of a rib she is perfect however if a nice little 4.7 came up with a Yam 70 on the back .......ok, i will keep dreaming?
