This is the worst part of kayaking, when you have to search for stolen gear. There was a group of three of us intending to paddle the Hurinui on Wednesday, 7th July. We left our boats and some gear hidden in the shrubs while we ran shuttle and in the half hour that we were gone someone stole them.

We are missing:

1 brand new red mystic (not a scratch on it)
1 almost brand new green smoothy (slight scratches to the front)
1 well used H3 235 green and blue
1 womans small kokatat drytop
1 red small stohlquist pfd

If anyone can help with any of this or gets offered any of these items, please contact me on 0273745828

We know that the boating community is tight knit and hope that we will get some or all our gear back with the help from others.
