C765 takes a swim

During a recent kayak trip my C765 decided to take a swim. It was under water for about 20 seconds I would guess, before I could rescue it. I immediately removed the battery and xd card. I removed the back cover the following day (I was camping and could not do it immediately). I let it air out for several days. Now it will not power up. Is it finished or worth repairing? Thanks

Try to sell it as a sparepart. Some components may have survived. I think of the Display or the keyboard on the back cover.

Intex Challenger K1 Rudder

No rudder system is available for INFLATABLE kayaks. They are no good for oceans or lakes only a swimming pool. Get a good solid Ocean Kayak or other brand that is RIGID. Your life may depend on it.

My new Coleman SCANOE sank.

Look up the "Bird Of Prey Canoe Stabilizer" on YouTube. For less than $80 a guy made stabilizers for this model of canoe. I'm looking into buying one and found your post. I have read in another area that people were having issues with it taking on water in the back while using a motor. We mostlly row, so at most I was considering a small trolling motor.

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.

How do you put an odometer on a kayak to track your mileage

The best solution is a good marine GPS unit. It will have options to plot your course and give you elapsed distances. I don't own one myself, but many of the people I paddle with do...and it's fascinating to see how many miles are added just bouncing back and forth across the missouri or the mississippi during a putatively 20 mile jaunt.

Just remember, even if it claims to be water proof, a clear drybag is your friend...why put "water proof" to the test if you don't have to?

Is the yakima big stack safe for fiberglass kayaks

I used the big stack for my river kayaks and it did fine. But my fiberglass sea kayaks are so much heavier that I did not take the chance. For 1 of my kayaks I spent a lot of money to get the special sea kayak rack and it worked great. For my wife's kayak I saved some money and bought some simple v-shaped foam rubber rack attachments for $20. The foam attachments are so much easier, I don't even use the Yakima attachemnts any more. My suggestion - save your money and go with the cheap foam attachments.

Rule H53sp-24 pool cover pump trips GFI breaker

GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.

I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.

Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.

Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).

How to pack an open cockpit kayak

Your main considerations are waterproofing everything. Bags within bags is the order of the day so to speak. Travel light and justify everything you pack for it's usefulness. Pack things you will need during the day closest to the access hatches / cockpit, with other items packed deeper in the bowels of the craft.

Check the trim of the boat once packed. Look at it from the side as it is floating. It should be ever so slightly stern heavy. If it is bow heavy it will be very difficult to steer.

Which kayak to buy

Plastic and fiberglass are the two materials the majority of kayak manufacturers are using today. Plastic kayaks are lower priced, have the largest selection of models and are known for being tough. The down side of a plastic hull is that it doesn't hold an exact shape, it's softer (therefore slower). It's close to weighing the same as fiberglass but you can't perform field repairs on it. Fiberglass is approximately $1000 dollars more for the equivalent-length plastic boat, but the hull is much stiffer, faster through the water and you can repair it. The down side to fiberglass is that it's more expensive, and if you drop it off the top of your car, you can crack it
