I have been bragging about this great idea with these holes for a few months, some people think I am crazy, some think I am dumb and some just aren't sure. A lot of people have worried about water coming in and not out and questioned whether it really works at all. So here goes with a bit of SWOT analysis of NevaFull. I also have a plan to make a short film of NevaFull in action so stay tuned.
The water that splashes into my canoe drains out really quickly, my canoe is never full and I never have to land to dump water.
If your air bag fails, one end of your boat sinks, so carry a spare.
I can now paddle long and technical rapids without having to worry that I can't make the last tricky move because my boat is full of water and heavy.
My friends tease me for having an Emmental cheese canoe!
The proof of the pudding is in the testing as they say. 2weeks ago I raced in the Straight Down Striit boater cross, it is a kayak race and I was the only canoeist there so I raced against kayakers. The fastest time down the course, 59.6secs, was posted by New Zealands Johann Roozenburg, he is world class slalom kayaker and bloody quick. My fastest time was 78sec, that would be impossible in a canoe full of water, if I can race a bath tub down class5 whiter water only 18seconds slower than New Zealands best slalom kayaker then to my mind NevaFull rocks, I was also not the slowest down the course, some kayakers couldn't keep up with me!
