Hey Flydoc

The 14 footer eh? That model wasn't available when we shopped for our 380. Make sure you order the stabilizing rudder!!! Without it, you can experience some power wasting tail waggle and directional control.

One day, we forgot to bring the foot pump DOH!!!, while my buddy drove back to our cottage, I decided to attempt to inflate it via mouth. Well, it worked! Whew! I was dizzy and out of breath and the inflation pressure was nowhere near spec. but after a few minutes in the sun, the expanding air soon brought the craft up to near normal rigidity. It's good to know that this is possible incase of pump failure.

Tight loops, and good paddling

Henry

Hank- thanks for the advice on the stabilizer....on the website they say it's for the older models, but I may call them to see if it would fit on the 420x (or whether it's already got one). I have a patient who works as a kayaking instructor, so maybe I'll get a few lessons from her so as not to end up at the bottom of Nantucket Sound....(I did order life vests, but one can never be too careful!). Will definitely bring it along on the FFF Yakbone, where/when-ever that may be!

P.S. SeaEagle does sell rod holders on the site- I ordered a couple for mine.
