    Hi all

    Myself and my buddies are going on a camping trip before one of our long term friends heads for asia to live and work.

    Our spot is out on an island on a lake in Galway.. Galway is where im situated

    Im looking to rent a kayak for the night or even to buy a dinghy for under 100 euro

    Can anyone help out with suggestons please. I have seen some ok dinghy on ebay but i dont have paypal and i think by the time i set that up and order one.. it may not be here on time...

    The excursion is on Friday 4th July


    Thanks All :)

    This reads like the start of an incident report.

    To be honest if you are not an experienced paddler it's not a great idea. There are some great places to wild camp in galway you could have a great time without going near the water.

    You're speaking to people who are experienced paddlers here. What you're suggesting is a bad idea and could end with death. We generally don't help people top themselves around here. :)

    lol. Where did you get the boat by the way?

    you should join a kayak / canoe club. that way you get to use the gear and improve your skills over a year. they are not mad expensive to join.
