Adrian Picked up the December edition of Canoe & Kayak. Includes a big buyers guide on all sorts of good stuff. A company called Easy Rider Kayaks do some amazing looking things including outriggers and gadgets to make two kayaks into a catamaran. Sadly their web site sucks with no links to product info. If you want info you gota pay 20 bucks for a video - excuse me????????

MarkDoogue As far as outriggers go, check out this link.

There is also a company called Easy Rider Kayaks that sells boats you can lash together to form platforms. Their site leaves something to be desired, though.

juro Roop and I were yakkin' about using crossmembers of some sort to connect yaks together and build a nice casting platform out there... that would be a kick! If nothing else a lightweight boom across yaks would allow your paddling buddy to stabilize your yak enough to climb in if needed.

I like the idea of outriggers. The pacific islanders have used them to navigate big seas successfully for centuries. I don't know why all sea kayaks don't offer a boom accessory.

FishHawk The reason I didn't choose the Tribalance was the cost, weight and difficulty in turning. Also without the outriggers how
stable is the Tribalance. I tried out the Pungo, Loon 138 and Perception America before I settled on my Necky Santa Cruz.
Of all the yaks I tested the people at Charles River Kayak said that the Santa Cruz is the most seaworthy. When choosing my yak I talked to kayakers and got their input. I errered on the side of safety.

Outriggers

Any opinion on Kayaks with outriggers. I own a Tribalance and like it very much for a number of reason.. Thr draw backs for me is the putting the pontoon together.. small cockpit and harder to turn.. But the stability is excellent and the speed is fine. Roop used it one morning.. Just want to find out why a lot of you guys are not mentioning this type of Yak in all the threads... What are your negative concerns?
