Happy New Kayak

A new year and a new boat. Today my new Pyranha Burn III arrived and it is my 5th personal Pyranha Kayak. In the past I have had an Ammo, Karnali, Zone, Varun and the previous Burn, all in the standard yellow and jaffa colours, all of which have looked after me. I also ran a fleet of Zones and Karnalis for teaching, they too were in the yellow and jaffa making a total of 11 boats in all.

Well, this time I have opted to change colour (gulp). I have also stepped up a size in order to be able to carry more and have more volume when running bigger rapids. I hope this boat looks after me as well as all the others have. I hope to hit the river tomorrow to find out.
