It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid license
/ permission from the relevant authorities to
use water craft on UK's waterways, rivers, lakes, etc. Not all inland
water is open to paddlers, some access points / rivers are privately owned
or is bounded by
land which is private, so do check beforehand. Membership of a
canoe union / club is very beneficial.
Double seater folding kayak
"NERIS Alu-2" - Classic double seater kayak designed to explore the
open waterways (lowland rivers, lakes, reservoirs and seas). It is perfect for
a paddle for the day, and up to long journeys.
The kayak has a large cargo area in the center of the cockpit, and comes
with comfortable one piece inflatable seats with tall backrests.
The "NERIS Alu-2" has duralumin frame pieces with brackets
made of stainless steel, which significantly improves the kayak's reliability,
strength and endurance.
The "NERIS Alu-2" has a simple and reliable design. The boat
is easy to assemble, has no short-lived plastic/rubber fasteners in the
framework. The frame is made of high quality D16T grade anodized aluminium
tubing. The large
cockpit means shorter front and rear decks and hence smaller internal storage
spaces within the ends of the kayak. The benefit of this is that the bow
and stern spaces is more easily accessible plus the rest of the storage
space is actually in the centre of the cockpit with no access restrictions
at all. The skin is made entirely of durable PVC which does not absorb
water, so after a paddle, simply wipe with a dry cloth and the kayak is
ready to be packed. All the cross ribs are of the closed design (closed
loop) - EG the front seat uses the cross rib for the back rest support.
Number of seats - two adults, or optionally two adults and one child. The
standard spray cover has 3 cockpit holes, and comes complete with 2 skirts
and one cockpit cover (central cockpit hole / cover is the access to the
central storage space).
