thanks.

ah ok. thanks. I thought they made an adapter for my electric pump (where I can take off the pump without having any air leak back out) That's the adapter you need that goes on the end of the pump hose in order to pump air through the spring valves on most of the AE kayaks. It would make more sense ...

Vinyl Repair Kit?

The tube of rubber cement that came with my kayaks has dried out over the years. They sell Plastic/Rubber/Vinyl repair kits that contain a small tube of rubber cement, metal rasp (to roughen area), and some patches. Do you think it's safe to use on these kayaks? I would like to replace the dried tub...

feel the material and construction.

I was at Campmor and felt the quality of the Pointer vs the AE. The material on the pointer (top fabric) is a whole lot thinner. If you're planning to be in the sun much and in salt water - this will eventually be an issue and wear down faster. Thanks MDO. I feel like we are in a similar boat (pun i...

Re: Pulling backbone together/apart

a) I have two backbones, one for each kayak. i used a razor and cut a bigger whole on one. and on the other, i just cut a huge piece away - it was getting annoying. b) wax based lubricant (ie: white lightening from bike store), just a very thin coat will do. zipper wax (Mcnett) will also work. even ...

Re: New(-to-me) Expedition on its way!

Was probably either a demo boat or a customer return - i wouldn't be worried if its coming from airkayaks.com :) Thanks for the advice kayakjak. Should arrive via UPS tomorrow. Again, amazing service from airkayaks.com! Sounds like it's only been used once, should be good... My husband is quite thri...

Re: Deflate

I leave mine on deflate and when I fold them up, the rest of the air gets pushed out. When I deflate (AF) with two-way hand pump I push te valve and set it to deflate (clockwise), but when I take the pump of it it seems to refill with air. I really have to be quick to push it but then still there's ...

Re: Used Expedition?

My 10.5 was purchased used and I've been using it for 2 years without an issue. These are tough boats usually takes a good amount of abuse before starting to wear out. (Unless it was over inflated - a weakness with all inflatables) It really depends on the previous owner. How he/she used it, did the...

Re: New AE Advanced Frame Convertible, Thoughts and Mods

I don't think anyone should be dragging their kayaks. Especially with fiberglass, wood, or inflatable types. There are proper ways to carry the kayak, either over the head or slung over the shoulder. If it's too heavy or if it's a long distance, use a kayak wheeler. I use a foldable luggage carrier ...
