re inflatable canoe
I owned two sevylot rio 305,s for a couple of years,done some good scottish trips with a long in the tooth friend of mine,mostly around Scottish lochs,best being Loch maree,we loaded the inflatables up so much it was looking like we were going to swim behind them,then my buddy broke out the bungie hooks, it never ceased to amaze me just how much gear you can get in/on these things,we stayed on a nice sandy beech checking the mountain routes out facing before we make our way up,the lake was like glass for three days from arriving ,then came the change in weather, so we packed up and started back,the waves were three footers and a strong cross wind from our left, hmmm! more than once i was getting ready to sling some gear overboard,but this would probably have made the boat too light,it was a real scrap,we got blown about pretty bad but it wasnt life threatening in any way,maybe a makeshift sail and rudder,??? but it was an experience untill we landed, at the car park, we got mauled by midges, yep, the wind dropped ,we were sweaty midge bait. ,The boats cost £250 ish pound,you cant put a price on the fun you can have with these craft, lots of storage,comfy seat,can hook up a small electric motor,no storage is needed ,you can get two in a small car boot,the canvass type coating makes them pretty tough too,just be aware they are holding air .
