just wanted to share that the convertible performed flawlessly with the velcros not aligned. of course, as i mentioned, i did this to make it look as symmetrical as possible, with the left half looking like a mirror image of the right half. we took the convertible to splitrock reservoir yesterday. p...

Paddling Splitrock Reservoir, NJ

just wanted to share our trip from yesterday to what's been described as the "paddling heaven of new jersey" - splitrock reservoir. after our trip, it's hard to argue with that description. it was a great day for kayaking - low to mid 70s, overcast so no sun beating down on us, and slight breeze wit...

Have fun . Always good to read how these kayaks manage different conditions. If you did manage to get it tracking straight , please don`t hesitate to to tell us how you did it . the pulling to the right issue seems to have corrected itself for this trip. i didn't have that problem, or perhaps i did...

thanks for the info - that makes sense. i think it would be tough to match up the velcros perfectly during manufacturing. i'm sure it could be done, but probably not worth the expense of trying to match them up perfectly. i'll give this setup a whirl and see how well it performs in the water this we...

Are the Velcros supposed to match up perfectly?

i've been fiddling with the convertible to ensure i have the optimal setup, with no kinks or twists in the tubes and to make it as symmetrical as possible. however, when i try to have it all symmetrical and everything seemingly aligned, the velcros on the outer shell barely touch the connecting velc...

backbone and floor aligned.

Sounds great fun , lake paddling is so relaxed ,no current when paddling back to the launch site . Mine drifts to the right too. I shall get round to checking this on my next trip. I think it has something to do with the floor and/or backbone alignment . After installing the backbone i laid the flo...

Maiden Voyage at Lake Hopatcong, NJ

Hi all! I just wanted to share our awesome experience with the Advanced Frame Convertible we had today at Lake Hopatcong, NJ on our maiden voyage. We were supposed to have record heat once again, like we did yesterday, so I thought about not even going at all. After looking at weather.com and decidi...
