The longer the boat the faster the hull speed. So if your friends are paddling kayaks that are seventeen feet long and you are in a twelve-foot kayak, you'll be paddling much harder just to keep up. If you intend to paddle on smaller bodies of water, say ponds or small lakes where distance is not a factor, length is not so important. But if you live (or plan to paddle) on a bay, then you should consider more of a touring boat which will track straighter and move through the water with greater stability as well as speed.

Thinking about purchasing a Kayak? Steps to be sure it is the right one for...


Hello. Kayaking has gained so much in popularity lately. And, it is such fun, and green fun too! Unlike a power boat, once you have your kayak, your personal floatation device [life jacket] and your paddle; you need not carry bundles of cash as you won't have to spend a penny on fuel.

You can get a one person model, or a two person model. In my experience, the one person model is the way to go. Among other things, you do not have to coordinate your strokes with a partner.

Now let's consider length. Kayaks can be as long as 17 feet and as short as 9 feet. Longer kayaks can be used for more storage, while shorter kayaks can turn much more easily. A good length for a beginner is 9 to 12 feet long, while kayaks that are used for tours are as long as 17 feet. The only limiting factor is storage.

What about storage? Do not buy a 14 foot kayak if you only have room to store a 13 footer. Enough said.

Regarding feel, fit, and stability; the only fool proof method is to try several out. Go to a kayak store that offers free fittings on the water. When we did this, the store had 70 different kayaks available and you could literally try them all if you wanted to. It took several hours to find the perfect kayak but it was well worth the time.

Sit On or Sit In: definitely your personal preference. Once you try a number of each out you will make your own decision here. Needless to say if you invision yourself doing serious white water kayaking you will want the type you sit in with a bib to keep you somewhat dry. For general kayaking in calm water, the sit on kayaks are great fun.

And now the paddle: you will want to consider length, weight, and what the paddle is constructed from. Aluminum is light and inexpensive but it will be as cold as the water you put it in.....I stay away from aluminum for that reason. Wood is good for cold water but on the heavy side; and like anything wood you have to maintain it's finish. My choice, even though it is more money is carbon fiber. These are very light, very durable and the most expensive. I believe, however, that they offer you the best investment.

What about lessons? Definitely take at least three hours worth of lessons when you start so that you develop good habits. Enjoy! Joe

Hi, i am teaching my wife how to parallel park,


Width of parking space: 2.6m and poles should be
Length of parking space: • Rigid: according to Table 1 • Articulated vehicles: according to table 2 The length of the parking space is determined by adding the total length of the vehicle as indicated in the top column, to the comparative free play in metres, as shown in the bottom column. For example: Length of Rigid Vehicle A is 9 metres – therefore the total length of the parking space is: Length of Vehicle + specified free play = 9 m + 1.8 m = 10.8m.

Rigid Vehicles:
Length of vehicle: 7.0-7.5m / 1.50m free play
7.6 - 8.0m / 1.60m
8.1 - 8.5m / 1.70m
8.6 - 9.0m / 1.80m>br /> 9.1 - 9.5m / 1.90m>br /> 9.6 - 10.0m / 2.00m
10.1 - 10.5m / 2.10m
10.6 - 11.0 / 2.20m
11.1 - 11.5 / 2.30m
11.6 - 12.0m / 2.40m
12.1 - 12.5m / 2.50m

Which kayak to buy


Plastic and fiberglass are the two materials the majority of kayak manufacturers are using today. Plastic kayaks are lower priced, have the largest selection of models and are known for being tough. The down side of a plastic hull is that it doesn't hold an exact shape, it's softer (therefore slower). It's close to weighing the same as fiberglass but you can't perform field repairs on it. Fiberglass is approximately $1000 dollars more for the equivalent-length plastic boat, but the hull is much stiffer, faster through the water and you can repair it. The down side to fiberglass is that it's more expensive, and if you drop it off the top of your car, you can crack it

Wont play full length


The Ilo can only play 30 seconds of video per clip. I'm afraid the only real workaround is to trim the video down to 30 second segments and number them in sequence so that the videos play relatively seamlessly. Thankfully, Ilo had the foresight to include a CD-rom with video editing software on it to allow you to do this, but any video editing program that can manage AVI formats will work.
