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.

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've had my 2013 Ride 115 for a month and half now. I took it out on a small calm lake and paddled for about 1 1/2 hours. When I went to put it on my trailer, I couldn't lift it because of all the water...


My first thought would be to check the drain plug which is located toward the back of your hull and quite possibly at or below the water line. Past that, there's a leak somewhere and you should take it to the dealer as it should still be under warranty.

My family is moving in...how do i increase hot water availability?


large water heater, turn p the themo stat to a higher setting ( watch for burns with young childern and older folks)

or the best install a tempering valve. this valve mixs hot water with cold water before it goes into the building.

Again if you have young ones or old people they can burn faster than any other group.the best is a larger heater for the DIY person.

Thanks Tom

I have a Savio 2220 waterfall pump that is acting up. I have been running the waterfall for 3 years without a problem. Recently the pump will run a short time and trip the gfci. After letting it sit for a...


It sounds like a seal has broken and water is getting inside, tripping the GFCI. it may be possible to get a new set of gaskets for the pump, but it is not really an easy thing to do. Three years if it runs all day is quite a lot of hours. You could try a local electric motor shop, and ask for an estimate.

Water leaking from the base of the tank


If you'r really lucky you may find a leaking fitting on top of the water heater thats draining down inside the shell and out the bottom, otherwise its time to replace a rusted out water heater.
Sorry

I have a ford 2001 windstar. the other day the temp gauge went close to High. After an hour of sitting while we went shopping. It didn't move from normal on the way home. we added 1-1/2 gallons of water...


If you absolutely need to drive the van without having it serviced ensure your coolant/water is topped off prior to setting out. Make sure you have LOTS of water on hand to top it off if needed and keep a very close eye on your temperature gauge. You should also stop every few hours even if the temperature gauge stays in the "normal" range to ensure its operating at the correct temperature. There could be a few things wrong with the van, but damage to the radiator or cracked hoses could be likely culprits.

That being said I wouldn't recommend any long trips before having this issue fixed.

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.
