NDK Romany sea kayak review

Coming soon (when the Corona Virus Lockdown is lifted) - Testing an old NDK Romany (now known as the SKUK Romany Classic) sea kayak to see if it lives up to it's reputation as an easy to paddle, easy to roll, versatile and playful sea kayak.

Claimed to be a day/weekend kayak for the medium sized paddler. For me it will be very interesting to directly compare it to my Seabird Scott MV.

Length: 485cm (16ft), Width: 54cm (21.25"), Depth: 32.5cm(12.8")  overall volume: 276.15 litres (60.75 imperial gallons),

Mine is an old, and somewhat tired, skegless version of the Romany c. 1997

Not a great quality video but you get the idea!
