What about that Kernow guy? He came across in a Rib-lo-tec 535 with a late 70's Johnson 90 Seahorse on the back!

Paddle board , what sort of thing was that ?. I have done it by sea kayak when i was younger , took 7 1/2 hrs from Porth Gwarra . But usually more like 8-9 hrs , had a good swell behind us that day . Long Boring trip

With a big rib I think I would go unless the Scilonian had been cancelled due to weather

I agree Ian. The only reason I won't gp to Penzance is I think it is too risky with a single engine unless you are running in convoy with someone. It has crossed my mind tho' as i recon here to Penzance at my normal cruising speed (20 - 24 kts) would be about 2 hours on a decent day. Not that much more than a trip to the Bishop (Rock lighthouse) and back. (8 knotical miles each way from my mooring).

BTW Ian

A paddle board you stand on and have a much longer paddle. I believe (heresay) that with the longer paddle you get more power per stroke. I recon you might be a bit less stable tho' standing up!

Ian

I don't think I would go alone . Feels a lot safer with company .
Longer paddle is better for cruising longer stroke less effort , short paddle for sprinting surfing etc . Never heard of a paddle board , or anything you stand on , sounds like hard work.
There is certainly some loonies out there in wierd craft , iam sure they practice on a lake then wonder why they can't get far on the sea .

Nah, a paddle board is one of those things that the Surf Lifesaving boys use. You kneel on it.
