How easily did it "overinflate"? Did you do it with a pump? Or did you leave it in the sun? I read some old messages here and JCOOLEY mentioned that it was quite difficult to overinflate the main tubes (I have a Convertible). I haven't thought much about overinflation, based on that comment. I use a...

Mmm................what did I do wrong? The image URL needs to be a link to an image. Your URL linked to a flickr page *not* an image. I clicked on your link and then clicked on the "share" button. The image URL was embedded in the BBCode link! I find ImageShack to be better suited to this use - th...

GPS on a camera? What kind? Our camera is a Panasonic DMC-ZS7. The GPS is great - works directly with iPhoto etc... If you take a picture with a later iPhone or many Android phones - they are automatically "tagged", as well. The waterproof camera with GPS that I saw was a Nikon AW100 (I think). Hav...

I've got an Olympus Tough 6000. It works well enough - but my next waterproof camera will have GPS.

I miss that from our non-waterproof Panasonic.

We've only been out a few times - but this is what I've found works well, so far: 1) small amount of air in outer tube (#1?) 2) small amount of air in inner tube (#2?) 3) install backbone and align 4) install floor 5) install deck 6) a little more air in outer tube 7) pressurize inner tube 8) inflat...

I've been getting in/out using my arms, putting my hands just behind the rear opening. The tubes are quite firm there - so I can lower/lift myself quite easily from that position. I think getting in/out of the front seat might be harder for me! My biggest complaint of the dual deck conversion - no s...

I don't see how the short bungee cord attaches to the deck cover D-ring, without untying and re-threading it through the spring clip each time.

Or is that the recommended method?

Thanks!

We assembled our new convertible over the weekend - we saw a plastic connector at the back of the seats and another on the deck cover.

What are these for? Do they get connected together some how?

We picked up the convertible and accessories last Friday. We are very impressed with the build quality of it - we planned to use it over the weekend, but the weather didn't cooperate. We assembled it once and I bought a Bravo foot pump with a gauge and I'm going to put it together again tonight... W...

Never ever buy a kayak without trying it first is another "common sense" advice. We *may* be able to try it before buying it - but my options are extremely limited, due to the space constraints. So it's really a "beggars can't be choosers" situation! As long as it fits in the van, holds both of us ...

Thanks for the comments! After LOTS of reading - I'm pretty sure I've decided to buy a convertible. I think I'm going to pick up both spray skirts, as well. I've been reading about the Backbone - and was concerned about the length of it. Our van has very little storage for long items - so I thought ...
