I've had a few questions about kit recently so here is a brief(?) list:
Boat: Rockpool Taran, of course.
Blades: Legend Small Fusions - cracking blades!
Paddling kit: Kokatat - various Goretex items - nice 'n' dry
Spraydecks: Phoenix of Nottingham, quality build by the other fatboy (and his elves)
Trolley: I believe it's the 'designed by Freya' trolley, kindly loaned by Justine + Barry.
Tent: Vango Force 10 Vortex Lite - impressive
Stove + cooking kit: Trangia multifuel stove
Dry Bags + map cases: Ortlieb
Headtorch: Petzl Pixa 3 - waterproof and bombproof
Sleeping mat: Exped Synmat UL - got 'upgraded' by Summit to Sea to the LW size - true fatboy lightweight luxury!
Sunglasses: Julbo - floaters(!)
Off the water: Patagonia Micro Puff jacket, excellent.
Food: Wayfayrer ready cooked meals and Clif bars.

John, It's the Trangia Multi-fuel stove, not a primus badge in sight!
