NEC, Birmingham 19-24th February, 2008 - Stand 1008
What better way to enjoy the outdoors than with Johnson Outdoors UK who will once again be displaying their comprehensive range of top quality canoes, kayaks and accessories at this years’ Show, stand 1008. Their lightweight, car-toppable watercraft are the perfect companion to any camping or caravanning holiday, and there’s a huge choice so you can find exactly what you need to suit you and your budget.
On the stand will be the highly popular Ocean Kayak sit-on-tops. Anybody can use these unsinkable craft which are impossible to flood or be trapped in, and it is easy to get back on them from the water. Single and tandem designs are available and there will also be a dedicated section for fishing kayaks. Plus there will a range of Old Town Canadian style canoes which are lightweight, tough and great for a day’s outing or a full camping trip. These are real ‘people carriers’ for the family with room for adults and children.
Among the latest sit-on-top designs is the exciting new Mysto from Ocean Kayak which has an innovative, sleek hull shape and lots of new features. At under 3 metres long and weighing around 20 kg, this is a performance sit-on-top which is easy to transport and very stable whatever your size or weight.
Also new is the Peekaboo, which has a viewing window built into the hull so you can see beneath the surface. There’s also an extra built in seat for a child so they can come along too and spot the fish. For those who’d prefer to catch fish, the new Prowler Trident 15 will be on display along with the Ocean Kayak fishing range. This high specification fishing kayak includes a Sonar Shield™ which provides storage and protection for a fishfinder. Johnson Outdoors UK, distributor of Humminbird fishfinders, will also be exhibiting the new Fishin’ Buddy which is a fishfinder complete with its own transducer shaft. The whole unit is easily portable and simply clamps on to a transom or gunwhale.
The new design of the Koru canoe, built by Old Town, will also be at the Show. Old Town is world renowned for designs which maximize the benefits of blending tradition and technology to achieve the ultimate designs. The Koru uses composite build technology to produce a canoe which is easy to handle both on and off the water. In essence that sums up what Johnson Outdoors UK is all about – offering highly versatile craft which use the latest materials to provide a safe, affordable way to get afloat and have some fun.
