Might be a bit tricky the people who I got the Mambo from told me to go to stand with the ainsworth paddles on and pick one to suit me because he was getting a supply of paddles from them so he supplied the size I told him, the size they told me complicated isnt it, and know they didnt measure me just looked at me and said im never far out.You just take it for granted sometimes being in the trade they should know.

Thanks Captain :D

To get this new thread rolling I'd like to ask about VHF radios. Am looking into buying a handheld VHF whilst trying to keep up with emerging technology and procedure.

Those of us with handheld VHF radios which model do you own? How do you rate it etc etc... was looking for one with DSC (digital selective calling) but after reading more on it, it seems that its not as supported & effective as a system on handhelds compared to fixed VHF radios. Also read that DSC enabled radios will only become law for larger vessels in the future.

Big differences in price for VHF handhelds.. I'm confused :o

Ok Olly.

Then the splice is the way to go.
Take the paddle along to a Kayak store, and ask thier advice.
They may sell you the insert and you could do it your self.

Good luck.

Hi Yakity

Aside from the safety side of things do you use your s much for catch and weather reports?

Weather updates come over he air from the local coastguard via chl 16, they offer a channel to move too to get the update.

As far as catch reports, you can call up another boat/yak via chnl 16, once you make contact arrange to meet on another ship to ship channel, and continue your conversation.

Looking at getting a couple of short range radios (waterproof )for genral banter with a friend while on the water.
