For Sale Robson Waikiki £300


I have for sale an 11foot Robson Waikiki, in good condition with the usual wear and tear. It’s an ideal first time boat, very stable in lumpy seas and the makers claim it is the fastest boat in its class. The keel and skeg make this boat track like a train. It has a rear waterproof hatches that can hold a considerable amount. My only criticism is, it’s a bit weighty. The boat has been garaged when not in use.

DAM Watersports Seal Replacement And Repair Service



Fitted To DAM Kit

Fitted to Any Other Manufacturers Kit
NECK SEAL £26 £29
WRIST SEALS ( pr ) £26 Any two £49 £29 Any two £56  + Carriage
ANKLE SEALS ( pr ) £28 £31
FEET / SOCKS ( pr ) £29 Any three  £77 £33 Any three £86  + Carriage
Seal Size:If the seals are in very poor condition then please also include any relevant measurements / shoe size.


DAM Watersports garments are designed to be repaired and re-sealed quickly and 100% effectively.

( Good-as-new, with  identical-to-new appearance )

Other Manufacturer’s Kit

We re-seal and repair all other manufacturer’s dry suits, BUT, in many cases these garments have not been designed with servicing in mind and it can take much longer to do the work – hence the higher prices.

OTHER REPAIRS – tears, holes, braces coming loose etc … a cost effective repair is often possible.  Please note – a visual inspection may be needed before a price can be quoted.


Usually 3 day turn-around time for seal replacements.  Phone to confirm.  Often available next day.

RETURN TO YOU BY 24 HOUR  POST / CARRIER Please add:   £9.00

( £16 for North of Scotland, Scottish Isles or N.Ireland ( 48 hour service )


( Deliveries to outside the UK please phone for details )


Return Carriage Methods:

We mainly use Interlink: an excellent carrier service to return your garments back to you.  They deliver Monday to Friday and will deliver before 5:30pm.  If you provide a mobile number they can text to give you a one hour delivery window.

We sometimes use Royal Mail Special Delivery, Parcel Force 48 Hour service or Royal Mail International Services for out-of-the-ordinary requirements such as larger consignments or deliveries where there are additional constraints.

All of these services have an excellent track record.  In order to maintain a high level of security they will require a signature upon receipt.  This does not need to be your own signature – a secretary or receptionist at a work address is fine.  They will not however deliver into the hands of neighbours, nor will they leave packages on doorsteps ( even if instructed to do so )  If you are not in to receive the parcel then a card will be left for you to telephone the carrier to arrange a second delivery attempt at the same address on a different day.  ( They will not alter the delivery address however. )  If you cannot arrange a convenient time for the second delivery or want the garment in a hurry then you will be able to visit the carriers depot and collect in person.

( A work address is often simpler. )


Post And Packing Advice:

If you can package your garment so that the parcel is under 2kg then the Royal Mail Special Delivery service is the quickest, highly secure way to send it to us.  Over many years this service has never let us down.  We do not recommend normal first class postage as this does not come with a worthwhile level of insurance.

Packaging:  We recommend wrapping your garment in multiple layers of plastic bags – this will give multi-layer protection to your garment.  ( special postal bags are available at post offices but offer few advantages )

Cardboard boxes are unreliable, heavy and can add significantly to the postal costs.

If the parcel is over 2kg the cost of Royal Mail Special Delivery increases threefold and so we recommend either a carrier service if you have access to one via work, or failing this – a Parcel Force 48 Hour Service. Both of these service providers offer full insurance and guaranteed delivery dates.  Parcel Force is available at most, though not all post offices.



For straight forward seal replacements, please enclose payment with your garment: cheques should be made payable to DAM Watersports.  Alternatively please contact us for bank transfer details.

For other repair services we will phone to discuss the prognosis before going ahead with the work.


DIY LATEX SEALS Pre-prepared for DAM Kit:  Neck £21  Wrists £21  Socks/Ankles £23  inc postage

Any two:  £39     Any three: £59    ( DIY means you save on the cost of two way postage )

We offer pre-prepared latex seals so you can fit your own at home or even in an emergency when you are away at an event.  The seals come with a very detailed set of instructions on how to effect the repair, please see separate document to see if you think you can manage the job.  The DIY seal replacement will work perfectly on all DAM Watersports gear and on most other brands utilising the modern stitched and multi-layer taped construction ( phone for advice )  The DIY seal attachment is very secure and reliable, it does not affect the quality of any future return-to-manufacturer seal replacement, even if you make a mess of it.

( We are available on the phone to talk you through the process if required )


DIY Seals for older non-DAM dry suits. Neck £16  Wrists £14  Socks/Ankles £17  inc postage

Any two:  £28     Any three: £42

We are able to supply latex seals for the older glued construction type of dry suit, but are not able to supply adhesive because of packaging and postal restrictions.  ( Bostick Leather Adhesive is widely available and is a suitable glue )

For sale Rockpool Alaw Bach £1750

I am seriously thinking of selling my Rockpool Alaw Bach, to buy another  Rockpool Alaw Bach.   NOW SOLD

These kayaks just do not come up for sale second hand very often. Mine is a few years old and in excellent condition.

I had a glass fibre keel strip professionally fitted last year, It did not have any marks in that area and was fitted before any were caused. There are some very minor scratches from beach landings, but nothing to cause concern.

The hatches are water tight and fitted with quality Kajak covers.

There is a ballast retaining setup in the day hatch, for lighter paddlers.

This is a spur of the moment decision and if it does not sell, I am very happy to keep it

I am asking £1750 or very near offer.

For Sale Thule Aerobars £50

(pre curser to the newer wingbars) plus feet and adapter kit for Ford Mondeo  2007 -2014 and Ford Focus 2011 onwards and probably a few other cars as well. Check www.roofbox.co.uk to find out.   Now Sold

The feet and adapters are for use on cars with no roof rails and the include the locking keys.

The bars are a few years old and subsequently have plenty of superficial marks on them but have plenty of life in them yet. I have replaced the tracks with brand new rubber inserts.

These specs for the feet and adapters are listed below with the prices on roofbox.co.uk- I can’t find the code for the aerobar as they don’t sell them any more but the equivalent wing bar sells at £80.

Cost about £190 new, looking for £50.
