Re: Sit on Kayak

We have a couple of Heritage sit-on-tops that have served us well. Indestructible and lots of storage for gear/food but a little heavy. Heritage doesn't make them anymore but you can get on their website and two other companies that bought the line still have some good ones. They're too bulky to get on and off our Pearson 26 so we bought an inflatable for next season.

Re: Sit on Kayak

Hi friends i am in trouble to purchase the Kayak and need your help that i just purchased two kayaks and have a vehicle without a roof rack what is the easiest/safest way to transport them i have purchased the foam blocks and cords but aren't sure if that is the best option.......

Faster Nice looking craft.. they are a bit longish for on deck storage on smaller boats. Our 9.5 foot Perceptions weigh in at 36 lbs, paddle well and fit on deck nicely. Necky makes similar models too.

Kiltmadoc If money is no object, and you want something that a 5 year old can lift, then I would take a look at these kayaks/sailboats: Warren Light Craft - Kayak Models

Izzy1414 Sorry Bilge, I know that was borderline unethical of me, but I couldn't help myself. Your story made me laugh. Yeah, I've done plenty of dumb things, some of them I've even owned up to (somewhere or other). I haven't managed to ..... uhm .... misplace my boat though .... YET!!!

I was attempting to let that thread die a natural death because to my surprise no one other than good old erps owned up to a similar mishap. I know there are more because I have personally towed a lost kayak to it's rightful stranded owners...not a sailor but still. I really think there are others for sure. Maybe it's just westcoasters loosing boats. oh..and don't worry, I won't play with your don't worry about that, just carry on as always.

I find it quite easy to get into a kayak from a boat if you do it on a regular basis and are used to it. I prefer sit in kayaks myself and I actually use a kayak much more often that my hardshell skiff. The one I have is 9' long and weighing in at 30 lbs I can easily throw it on top of my pilothouse with one hand.
Funny, your kayak looks different in your posts now, Bilgewater!!

QuickMick well i forgot to snap a pic of mine so here is the link to it:

MAINSTREAM KAYAKS Streak Sit-Inside Kayak at West Marine

not as fancy as the dagger products, but for 299 bucks it works fine for me. paddle sold sep., west marine brand was 40 ish bucks. no problem transfering without getting wet and its pretty stable.

Faster Very similar to our Perceptions, BW.. I think they're great.

Dfok The sit on top is wet - something I didn't consider until it got colder this fall. The other day I noticed the boat bits blog mentioned the NUcanoe, which may be an option to a sit on top. Looks stable and has more room for stuff.
