BUT.
I have bought a Kayak for fishing Very Happy
Its a Galaxy Cruz, which I plan to use on the canal, Thames and reservoirs.
There are some safety courses in my area which I want to do and I am also looking for some one in the area to go out on the water with for some fishing???
I need to get some safety equipment and a roof rack before my first voyage.
I can not wait.

This is a very frustrating time Sad .
It has been great fun creating things to fit to the Kayak, including fitting my old Lowrance fish finder plus an anchor trolley.
This included drilling holes in it which made me very twitchy but with the help of YouTube the job is a good one.

So far the only issue I have found with this budget kayak is the lack of flat surfaces in front of the seat to mount things, it does have a lot of pre threaded areas that I can mount Railblaza connectors to so that is no doubt the way to go.

I have done quite a bit of research on where I can fish with it as a lone Kayak and have found that Ravensthorpe will allow me out on my own Very Happy, so I guess other reservoirs that allow float tubes may be the same ( any suggestions)

The down side is I still have about three weeks before my op wound heals enough for me to be able to put it on and take it off the roof rack on the car.
My friend across the road has said he will help me load and unload it so I may get my first outing in before 2019.

My total out lay so far is about £375 .
