How good's the Assassin?

I get a call from the guys @ Pyranha telling me to get myself to Hurley, it's on 3 and they want me to go paddle the new Molan. If you live in the UK you know that most of it looks like a Christmas card right now which means one thing it's freezing cold and the roads will be all clogged up with stupid people driving into each other / trees / other inanimate objects (delete as appropriate). Cutting a long rant short eventually arrive at Hurley as its getting dark with about 40 minutes to spare...

...one thing for it step out of the car into the Assassin. throw around a freestyle boat (which is mighty fine btw - go try one) in the the snow and ice for 40 minutes, step out of the Assassin get in the car. Perfect! One word of wisdom though holed jeans and a Howies tee don't make for good thermal layers!
On the way to the weir, yes that is snow & yes it is sunset.

Warm, dry and feeling a little bit like James Bond
