    Vanquish 1 first came out in 2003, was very popular and is still a very popular boat. It is one of the best boats you can buy.
    Vanquish two followed, not as popular and was quickly replaced by the vanquish 3 which is probably the best boat you can buy and the most popular K1 in the world.

    Unless you're very used to them, they will all feel more or less the same.

    If you aren't used to a k1, these probably aren't the best boats to buy first, you might want to go for a stabler boat.

    Thats the link for the discussion board post on the paddles from south africa, the order ids going in this weekend though so you'd want to let him know by tomorrow. Its the original post, i presume the reply to the other post was you?

    Other than that, if you put a wanted ad up on irish marathon canoeing you might get something, dont know anyone selling any myself at the moment but i'll pm you if i hear!!!

    Yeah the vanquishes are quite a bit more stable and more comfortable than the scorpions.
