We spotted what looked like a great little water sports shop just down from Lymington High Street on the way to the IoW ferry terminal so popped in to have a shifty after Dubs in the Forest.

They have a huge range if all sorts of water sports equipment small and large and we were looking some advice to have a proper look at some small (short) sea kayaks.

Small so that it would fit inside Tallulah if needed and not be too heavy, but also with a reasonable performance on river/lake/sea.

The very helpful chap gave us some good advice and let us try one for size, gave us a discount on the ex display one we'd just tried in T so we didn't bother taking it out again.

We're gonna need a bigger shed.....

Indeed, the yet to be built lifting roof plans may well amended before production begins.

You bought it simply because it was the right colour!

I can't say it didn't factor in our decision sunny

Most kayaks are in the region of 3m, there are a few much shorter 'specialist' ones used for white water but we wanted an alrounder.

We bought a Yak Ocean Kayak which is 2.4m long.
