    unplanned swim at Garry Point

    Back when I was young and stupid, a buddy and I took his zodiac out around that area. We ran out of gas and had to paddle (we had one oar) back to shore; that alone was a lesson in currents for me! And also to check how much gas you have before venturing out. :p I’m glad this SOT paddler‘s...

    Any GAIA GPS Users? Nautical Charts for Canada?

    That HitCase looks awesome! However the Pro case for the iPhone 11 Pro is sold out. I’ve emailed them to see if/when they will be available again. Thanks for sharing. I use the GAIA app for offroad exploration, so it would be great if I could also use it for paddling.

    Broken Group PERMANENTLY CLOSED during fall/winter/spring

    Sounds like they are worried about people getting themselves into trouble in the off-season. Not really different than back country hiking and camping in the winter though; be prepared and ready to wait for help if you need it and be willing to take the risk of encountering severe weather. Sell...

    Barricaded Trails/Roads to Public Lakes or Rivers

    That's a good point as well. I'm sure the argument is that those commercial kayak companies are contributing to the tourist industry, therefore contributing more to the local economy; less so do we as lowly taxpayers (they already *have* our money, so this is a way to get some more out of the...

    Barricaded Trails/Roads to Public Lakes or Rivers

    Very interesting, indeed. I would have thought changes in water levels over private property would result in eminent domain as the lake bed is Crown Land. Also, altering a fish bearing watercourse or lake is a big no-no in BC without approval from the Ministry of the Environment and...

    How do you COVID paddle?

    I paddle solo and COVID social distancing has been easy for me because I have no friends! :D:cool:

    G'day, New to the Forums

    Since we’re veering off topic anyways, who is left that sells the more performance based boats in BC? Comox Valley Kayaks sells decent boats (NDK/SKUK, CD, Nimbus, WS), but with the demise of Ecomarine and MEC’s now lacklustre selection, and Deep Cove/Coast Outdoors seeming to focus more on...

    What's going on w/ my dry suit??

    This is awesome, thanks John! I had found the NRS video after I posted and figured I'd go that route, but the Bomber Gear version might be better if can't leave enough of the old gasket material to adhere to. This has given me the confidence to try and do it myself, and this is why I love this...

    What's going on w/ my dry suit??

    Dang! For that price, I can wait. Would you recommend the standard or heavy duty versions? I’m also betting someone has an alternate to having to buy a neck gasket replacement tool? It looks like a piece of 1/4” plywood cut into a circle would work fine. It would be a good excuse to buy a...

    What's going on w/ my dry suit??

    Thanks, that’s much more reasonable. I just checked their website and it says the large neck gasket is indeed out of stock. Can you find out when the next shipment will come in?
