I bought the Kayak before Christmas but never got round to testing it out so I decided to take the new kayak to the canal today for its maiden voyage.. How hard could it be !!!

Great video guys. 4:15-5:15 I actually wept, laughing. Nice one.

Did you mean to feather your paddles? Feathering is where you have one blade that is twisted slightly, in case of windy conditions so that one blade can slice through the air. Not sure if you meant to do that.
Also, your supposed to get low in your boat, and put your bum in there as soon as you can, then put the other leg in. You don't get in on your knees, unless you plan on swimming instead lol. I watched vids on how to get in and out of a Kayak, but most vids don't discuss inflatables. You got out of it a lot easier than when you got in lol.

You need a new cameraman...way too much jerking around which makes it not fun to watch. This is a mess, please redo it correctly.

Paid $550 for the canoe. We use it 3-5 times a year. At two years old the main side bladder blew a 4 inch hole in the seam while drying in the garage (in Tahoe so it's not blistering heat by any means). Sevylor now Coleman doesn't sell or have any help for a replacement bladder??? It's a $500 inflatable device and the seam separated!!! Spoke with Tony the manager at Coleman today and while nice he has nothing to offer but a 35% discount on a new canoe? So I have a $550 disposable kayak...NICE for the consumer and the landfills.Loved it before this however, I would NEVER recommend a Sevylor product again because of this policy. Shame on you Coleman!

Nice video.. your wife makes me laugh! You need a Skeg so you have more control. it will help a lot when it is windy or a current. Makes it much easier to handle.

These are awesome craft, fit in any car and get you on the water minimum of fuss. Used mine with whole family of 2 adults and 2 children in Norwegian lakes. Paddled it for miles and had a great time. Would not hesitate to buy the new Madison model.

Hi nice canoe mate,I have the older blue one,Prepped Nomad is spot on,especially on a hot day,but even in normally cool weather the air being forced into the canoe is heated up,Fit a piece of rope to the front and once pumped up place it in the water and tie it up while you do the seats etc,then top it up to pressue..The rope is also handy if you fall in you just grab it and walk or swim in..I had the same issue with the seat too paddling solo,what i did was use a canvas strap connected to the handles to give a little knees bent purchase and push me back into the seat or you can buy a hi back seat,stay safe and enjoy...

Love the feel out on the water mate, nothing like it, I had the two person Colorado a few years back now very stable even in the sea but could never get on with the seat, no mater what I did I just couldn't get the support there, maybe best thing is to ditch the seat and kneel down with the one paddle, hopefully see you soon mate

+Grifftinderpals Don't know about a race, I'll need to put a motor in it first...lol... Would put a v8 in but think it would sink :)
Caves are in Wolverley , but all of the Kinver Edge has this sort of caves - some have been turned into a museum sort of thing - an interesting visit if you get the chance to walk round the area

Looks a smart boat. A theory I've heard with inflatables is once they're in cold water, the air compresses, so you need to put a bit more in. That might be why your position wasn't comfy as you shouldn't have the crease in the middle. My inflatable's terrible when it's not rock hard. Clothing wise, wetsuits are a bad idea as they chafe your shoulders and arm pits. You want a "long john" same material, but like trousers and a vest in one. A "cag top" is like a waterproof coat with sealed neck, cuffs and waste, you can wear a jumper underneath if cold. And some "bank boots", like neoprene shoes to keep your feet dry if you tip in. A helmet and (kayaking) buoyancy aid also recommended. Plus some tough dry bags for kit. Happy paddling mate.

Nice paddle on the river mate+
Loved your boss laughing, mine was much the same when i decided to do a river crossing and floating my bergan thing instead of the ASL challenge thing..
Been an age since i have done any canoeing mate..
A pair of  wet suit kegs are cheap enough  mate , i swear by em unless you want a wet bum..
Be safe and good to see you out and about .
