Extra Storage for a Double Sea Kayak

Postby weekendwithbevo » 22 Jun 2020, 18:41

Hello all,

With a 2 night trip away soon and wanting to use our sea kayak, storage space was identified as possibly a little on the tight side.
I decided to use a small amount of space under the deck for some small items freeing up space in the storage hatches.

Here's a link to my blog

Cheers,

I had a quick look at your plan just make sure it doesn't get in the way mainly if you need to get out upside down - the last thing you would need it something that could trap you if things went pear shaped - it would be worth trying it in a controlled way just to make sure it could be done with gear under the deck

and yes re entry practice is no fun this time of the year I know I was practicing ( or trying to do ) eskimo rolls a couple of W/Es back after doing the proccess 5 time only half way and then turning into wet exits while upside down - I did notice the water is damm cold atm

Footwear being caught by the lashing hooks were a consideration and something that will be in the back of our minds. Where we’re planning is dead flatwater, so should be right. I could get some plastic chair legs to cap the hooks to negate the hook.
