Hi Jan,

Don't know how long a trip you are planning, but the Ems river is something to look at to. I remembered a fellow blogger/paddler writing about his trip on the Ems:

Sonar: what's the deal with that? 4%, gee. Your always welcome to visit Holland.

Timbo: if you ever go paddling in the BiesBosch or near Rotterdam, let me know. Also a great route: visit Amersfoort with kayak. You can find a nice route on kanokaart.nl. It's a great combination of nature and culture.

With the inflatables from AE you have less risk to get in incidents like with normal kayaks. So instructions that go for normal kayaks really don't go with AE kayaks. Ask someone to bend to left or right to the waterline from a normal kayak and a AE kayak. With AE they will be dry :-) A roll: it is ...

Hi, You also could think about the following: Some days ago I saw someone with an inflatable (other brand, don't know which) and it had a trolley to store it on. I guess it isn't to hard to make some sort of trolley with oversized wheels to go on sand. For the pumping: there are several pumps with a...

It was probably a tribute to air kayaks. The dolphin must have thought: finally some boat I don't get headaches from while bumping into it.

This probably goes for anyone here: The old trick in choosing a paddle was taking your arm up and getting your fingers just around the highest blade. However different paddling styles have something to do with choosing the right length. If you are using the high-angle stroke you normally end with so...

A cheap alternative to RVS Frames

In The Netherlands you can buy RVS (rust free steal) frames. I have them myself and they work great preventing water to drip through the zippers. However they can only be bought at the shop in The Netherlands and they are pricey. The great think about, as far as I know, being the only Dutch blog wri...

Well I did some investigation and found: http://www.midwestik.com/midwestik/midwestik.nsf/dx/speed.htm This let's you calculate the max hull speed using width and length. AE Frame: 2.38 Mph AE Expedition: 3.99 Mph AE Convertible: 4.86 Mph AE AirFusion: 5.42 Mph The calculations are not exact because...

Good question. Pray to every god that exist?

What about: tie it up to a very long rope and let it drift away and get it back after the lightning has passed?

You should have told the police to try the kayak for themselves or to moterboat accross you and a regular kayak. Let's see who goes in the water first :-)

Also the Frame/Fusion kayaks are no inflatables, they are 'air kayaks' ;-)
