    Kayak

    I've just started getting into river kayaking. Nothing extreme, just a gentle cruise down rivers and canals in the North West.

    If anyone has a kayak or a recommendation for a kayak suitable for a 16 stone 6 foot 4 lunk I'd be most greatful!

    I'm ideally looking for something second hand and I'm not too bothered about the condition, so long as it floats!

    My father - also 6'4" used a Stypyak for years.

    They're built by a dutch man - Pieter van Stypdonk (really!) of similar proportions. I have no idea if they're still around. As I stopped growing at 5'11", I always managed to fit into more convential boats for slalom!

    The Pyranha general purpose boats boats have always been pretty roomy and could be worth a try.
    .: www.pyranha.com :.
    They are pretty widely available
