I'm about 99% sure of going yak next season. I don't plan to fish from it though. Of course if a blitz erupts around me I'll be casting... but I am thinking I'd rather be on my feet.

This being the case, would I be better off with a sit-on-top model? How hard is it to get in and out of a yak in waist-deep water if I over-indulge the striper-filled flood tide?

Anyone think of a easy on/off stabilizer design to make it stand-up stable when you want it to be? I mean like pvc pipes with closed cell flotation that slide over receiver tubes pointing perpendicular to the hull, stored on clips on the yak until you want to secure them to the hull and stand up. Hmm... I think I just did. ;-)

How about setting up a bridgework for two or more yaks to join together into a modular fishing platform?
