If you need to form another opening that should be o.k. You will however have to stitch it up again as this will be a weak spot when the pole is once again inserted and the sail is fully expanded. It would be best sewn by hand and with a strong polyester cotton. you need to remove the whole pole the...

Re: Am I a fool if I paddle down a river without a pump on b

Just been reading through the paddle section.

The question is do you leash your paddle to your Kayak
or leash it to your wrist.

I have in the past be doing both what would the disadvantages be with either method.

Or indeed both.?????
