Thanks All

 

 

 

Xcon, In general, get a kayak thats up around the 4m mark, it seems to be a bit of a sweet spot for stability, speed, and being able to lift it...

 

Definitely recommend Viking as a brand, they make good kayaks and there is a good second hand market for them.

 

There are many different things when you get out on the water, Safety is always key, so always have you life jacket on, and have a couple of forms of comms. Apart from safety, there are different ways of fishing, (anchoring, drifting, trolling) me and my friends mainly paddle out to a spot (depending 500m - 1km from where we launch most of the time) and anchor and burly up, and sit, relax and fish for a couple of hours, then maybe move to another spot.

sonyxperiageek: Welcome to Geekzone!

If you don't mind me asking, how did you start out as an IT Networks and Security guy?

 

 

 

I have been working in IT for around 9 year's now, I would say I did it the hard way, with out many qualifications, and worked my way up from the bottom. Through service desk, Desktop, networks, server, Senior Networks and Security. Or another way of looking at it, I got my foot in the door, worked hard, proved my self and took some chances/opportunity and have worked my way up to my current position.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Thanks 


some call me @jevvv

Welcome to GZ. Good to see you're finding your way around and lending your expertise already :) 





<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.
