Any pulley system has an rating to lift your two rigs check into west marine or homedepot for pulleys, there really isnt one that is the best, unless you need one for a high dollar boat

I need a blow up kit for a pathfinder kayak 2 person 10 foot do you have one ?


Get rid of your inflatable kayak and buy a solid polypro kayak like an "ocean kayak' brand. Inflatable kayaks are JUNK! No speed and they slowly LEAK!!!

Tip

Thinking about purchasing a Kayak? Steps to be sure it is the right one for...


Hello. Kayaking has gained so much in popularity lately. And, it is such fun, and green fun too! Unlike a power boat, once you have your kayak, your personal floatation device [life jacket] and your paddle; you need not carry bundles of cash as you won't have to spend a penny on fuel.

You can get a one person model, or a two person model. In my experience, the one person model is the way to go. Among other things, you do not have to coordinate your strokes with a partner.

Now let's consider length. Kayaks can be as long as 17 feet and as short as 9 feet. Longer kayaks can be used for more storage, while shorter kayaks can turn much more easily. A good length for a beginner is 9 to 12 feet long, while kayaks that are used for tours are as long as 17 feet. The only limiting factor is storage.

What about storage? Do not buy a 14 foot kayak if you only have room to store a 13 footer. Enough said.

Regarding feel, fit, and stability; the only fool proof method is to try several out. Go to a kayak store that offers free fittings on the water. When we did this, the store had 70 different kayaks available and you could literally try them all if you wanted to. It took several hours to find the perfect kayak but it was well worth the time.

Sit On or Sit In: definitely your personal preference. Once you try a number of each out you will make your own decision here. Needless to say if you invision yourself doing serious white water kayaking you will want the type you sit in with a bib to keep you somewhat dry. For general kayaking in calm water, the sit on kayaks are great fun.

And now the paddle: you will want to consider length, weight, and what the paddle is constructed from. Aluminum is light and inexpensive but it will be as cold as the water you put it in.....I stay away from aluminum for that reason. Wood is good for cold water but on the heavy side; and like anything wood you have to maintain it's finish. My choice, even though it is more money is carbon fiber. These are very light, very durable and the most expensive. I believe, however, that they offer you the best investment.

What about lessons? Definitely take at least three hours worth of lessons when you start so that you develop good habits. Enjoy! Joe

I need a drain plug for Eagle Run 12 kayak. Where can I find one? Dick's Sporting Goods is no help.


I would try either a West Marine (they have several drain plugs available) or your local outfitters. In the St. Louis, Missouri area, I would probably recommend Alpine Shop because they\'ve always been good to me with repairs.

For what it\'s worth, I wouldn\'t buy anything other than clothing from Dick\'s. They just don\'t seem to have any expertise in other areas.

I purchased a radsportz kayak hoist which appears to be a sturdy, high quality product. The instructions say to position the two pullies no less than 6 feet 8 inches apart, but I need the hoist for a short...


you should be fine to go shorter. The reason for the 6-8 foot recommendation is balance. a 12-14 foot kayak would risk tipping it you had a 4-foot width and didn't denter it just right. Your shorter kayak should do fine at 4 ft, but I would be careful to center.

I am getting lots of water in my tandom outfitter kayak . one hour trip produced about 3 gallons of water. how can we fix this problem leak?


Probably a crack in a seam rather than an obvious hole in the bottom. Empty the contents and submerge in water. Or conversely, fill up the kayak with water and make note of the leaks. Food coloring in the water may help to identify the area.

Fiberglass repair kits are available at the hardware store for minimal cost.

Length og a kayak


The longer the boat the faster the hull speed. So if your friends are paddling kayaks that are seventeen feet long and you are in a twelve-foot kayak, you'll be paddling much harder just to keep up. If you intend to paddle on smaller bodies of water, say ponds or small lakes where distance is not a factor, length is not so important. But if you live (or plan to paddle) on a bay, then you should consider more of a touring boat which will track straighter and move through the water with greater stability as well as speed.

Safe touring kayak


A boat designed for greater touring distances and a higher degree of safety would have a smaller cockpit, hatches and bulkheads. The smaller cockpit allows for contact with your knees for control. The hatches and bulkheads are designed to be, for the most part, air- and watertight. You can store gear (in dry bags) in these as well as have hundreds of pounds of positive buoyancy should your cockpit fill with water.
