Can we paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of
the waterways, rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe
Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association
of Northern Ireland) includes a license to paddle
on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.
Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are
privately owned or is bounded by land which is private,
so do check beforehand. See Useful
are folding kayaks where we already have the original frame on
hand but will arrange for
the replacement skin to be made on request. You decide
on the deck colour, deck features (EG paddle pockets / holders,
deck-lines) and keelstrips, etc.
The frames are in reasonable to very good condition.
To keep costs down, the frames are not re-varnished etc. This can
be your DIY project if neccessary, but in most cases, the frames
do not require re-varnishing for a few more years. Photos
can be supplied on request.
Just needs a replacement skin to be made?
We will gladly arrange a custom made replacement skin to your specifications.
The skins will be made by experienced craftsmen with several years experience, specifically chosen based on their specific skill sets in working with fabrics that will be used in the requested replacement skin. Some of the kayaks are already listed under the "Used" sections on this site.
