    (Seats up to 2 adults + 2 children)

    More photos available on request.

    Asking £525 (Reasonable offers will be considered)

    Fast, stable, family-friendly kayak suitable for inland and coastal waters. Two paddling seats plus two passenger seats for children up to about 12 years.

    I’ve had some wonderful trips in this kayak with my wife & son: River Stour, river Thames, the Norfolk Boards, as well as trips off the beach & along the Suffolk coast.

    Very good condition: Only a few very fine scratches on the bottom.
    Viewing welcome by arrangement.

    Included in sale:
    Tobago Kayak Boat
    2x Sevylor Paddles (2.3m)
    2x BIC Sport seats (detachable)
    2x bungs & straps for scupper drainage holes
    Bic Custom elastic straps for rear deck - to secure drysac for gear.
    Rear seat height & angle adjustment pad (HD minicell foam) gives a more sporty paddling position and also helpful for smaller paddlers as when sitting too low they tend to catch their paddles on the side of the boat).

    Total price new £897

    Design features:
    The distance between the seating positions is sufficient to allow two people to paddle ‘out of sync’ without clashing paddles. This is very helpful when using the boat with children or less experienced crew. Obviously it’s better to paddle ‘in sync’ and when this can be achieved it is even possible to have a third person on the middle seat who is also paddling.

    With many sit-on-top kayaks you find yourself permanently sitting in a puddle (due to the seats being just on or below the water line). By comparison the Tobago is a dry boat as the seating positions are a little higher. On calm water it is quite possible to use this kayak all day without getting wet at all! However, if you want some action off the beach in the surf this kayak rides the waves with ease and thanks to the self bailing scupper holes it will shed any water that does come over the side.

    The Bic Sport seats are fully adjustable and provide a padded seat base and supportive backrest which can be moved from a laid back position for leisurely paddling to a more upright position for an athletic paddling style. For simplicity you can use the boat without them, but the seats make it possible to make longer trips with more comfort.
    There is a child's ‘jump seat’ moulded onto the bow and a 'motorbike style' centre bench seat, both padded with EVA foam sheet. They are intended for children up 12 yrs, (about 60-70 pounds).
    Safety lines down both sides makes the boat easy to hold onto when in the water swimming or boarding.
    Strong carry handles front & rear
    Wheel in the keel – for easy transport (over firm ground)
    Can be carried easily by two people and lifted onto car roof (see photo)
    The rear deck provides space for carrying a large drysac: There are two adjustable elastic straps to hold the sac securely in place.

    High performance hull design:
    The designers at Bic wanted to make a unique kayak shape. Ergonomic seat for comfort. Tri-hull for stability with a center displacement hull section for tracking and nimbleness.
    The THD (Triple Hull Design) shape was conceived to provide excellent glide and to give great manoeuvrability, while retaining maximum stability. The special shape of the hull was inspired by trimaran construction, and features a large central section with narrow water channels to optimise glide, and two outer hull sections that give the boat stability without slowing its forward speed. The two resultant concave sections help improve the overall performance.

    Length 395cm x width 84cm
    Weight 32 kg

    Bic is of course known for pens &, razors etc, but they were also a leading innovator in the windsurfing community in the 1980s and now have a thriving Watersports division producing surfboards, wake boards and kite boards, in addition to a wide range of sit-on-top kayaks.
    Most plastic kayaks are ‘roto-molded’ (in one-piece). Bic uses the more sophisticated ‘Twin Sheet Technology." A sheet of Linear Polyethylene is extruded and then vacu-formed over a mould. One for the deck and the other for the hull. The two parts are then fused together under heat and pressure, essentially welding the deck to the hull. Inserts for the mounting hardware are melted into the deck at this phase, permanently bonding them. The boat is then pressure tested for leaks. This process allows for different shapes that rotational moulding cannot provide. The plastic is a high quality weld-able polyethylene with UV protection. (Can also be recycled). The other big advantage of twin sheet technology is that the boat can be made lighter because it is possible to maintain a constant hull thickness. (With roto moulding the thickness varies).

    And finally... if it’s so good why are we selling it? My son and I are now developing our skills in sea kayaking, for which we use sit-inside kayaks. We have limited room in the garage and need to sell something to make space!
