Holes appear at seams

This is the third summer that we have been using our strait edge 2 kayak. The first year we had no issues but at the end of last summer the floor developed a hole at the seam. We patched it but a second hole appeared else where on the seam so we replaced the floor chamber. This year the side chamber...

Sailboats to go sail

Thanks for the info
I see that there is a sailing rig available for the Strait Edge 2 from a company called sailboats to go.

Does anyone have this sail?
If so I was wondering, how easy it is to set up and whether you are able to tack or whether it is just a down wind sail.

Hole on seam

Thanks for the reply. My replacement floor has arrived and I think that I may get a spare for the side compartment as well. I did manage to repair the hole on the seam though! I used a vinyl repair liquid from Walmart. I applied 5 coats while it was deflated waiting for it to dry each time and then ...

Tear on Seam

I have a small hole that has appeared on the seam of the floor compartment of my Strait edge 2 kayak. The air goes out of it pretty quickly on the one side. We have had it for two years now. I am always very careful not to over inflate so I am not sure why a hole appeared. I have ordered a replaceme...

Strait Edge 2

We bought a Strait Edge 2 this spring and have used it on several class 1 rivers as well as lakes. We are pleased with the boat. I think the good things are the stability which is excellant and also how versitile the kayak is. We have loaded it with camping gear for an over trip, used it for day tri...

Strait Edge 2

We bought a Strait Edge 2 kayak this year and we have been impressed with how stable it is. We have taken it out on lakes where boats have zoomed past and it handled the resulting waves really well. I have not felt like we were going to tip on any of the trips that we have taken. I also like the ver...

Inflation

What is the best way to judge whether the floor of my Strait Edge 2 Kayak is inflated correctly. Initially, I used a pump with no pressure gauge and inflated until I could still touch the base of the boat with moderate pressure. The performance was really sluggish. I purchased a AE pump with a press...

Damage from Insect Repellant

I recently read an article which warned against the use of insect repellants containing DEET due to the damage which it can cause to plastics and some other materials.

Which insect repellants are safe to use with my Strait Edge 2 Kayak?

Would Permethrine be a better alternative?
