...What does a REAL Yaker wear under his kilt...oops, I mean skirt?!...

Ideally, there should always be alot more water on the outside...
With that in mind, use a spray skirt and you won't take on gas when you bust through waves/wakes...otherwise, slowly but surely you boat will gain weight (and worse) as it continues.
Even with a skirt in place there will be some slosh so a dry bag should be on the "list"...a safe place for cell, keys, whatever...

It's a good idea to get out onthewater with friends like Jim...
Rather than trying to re-invent the wheel...
You can drastically shorten the learning curve and pick up rigging ideas by seeing what's already out there and picking off what works for you...

YAK Concentrate...just add water and enjoy!
