I'm an old guy who used to have a yacht but retirement and rising mooring fees and other cost meant moving on. I went from that to a motor bike for a few years then r/c model planes after which the pull of the sea was still strong so I went for a couple of kayaks. Great fun but dragging it up steep sandy beaches eventually became a chore so yesterday I bought a second hand Hondawave 3.6 along with a Yamaha 6hp 2t which I'm told works ok but has a bit of a blockage in the cooling system so a little work to do before I can try it all out.
Blew it up today and it looks a lot bigger than I thought and weighs a lot more too, maybe I should have kept the kayak
(not serious) We've got plenty of slipways here so my intention is to load it onto the car roof and get a collapsible launching trolley for the move from car park to water with engine fitted to save my back.
I'm sure I'll need to call upon the collective wisdom here before long but in the meantime I'll enjoy browsing for a while.
