Don't worry about the psi reading for the floor. When you are inflating, watch the floor go from flat to the point where each chamber becomes more rounded. Then test with your finger. You should be able to press firmly on the top surface and still push you finger down to the bottom surface. If you c...

I don't know what you have under the covers! Looking at that last pic, your tube may have a kink in it - you can see a fold of the inner tube. Unzip the tube cover and check that your tube is smooth all the way round. If it is not, partially inflate it, push it into the cover at both ends and zip it...

You can roll the kayak, but you need very good core strength to get it back up again! They are actually quite hard to turn over, but if you do, turn it back upright the same as you would a hard shell. One you are back in, you are going to have a lot of water to get rid of. If you don't have a scoop ...

Drop-Stitch. Insead of being hollow inside, there are thousands of fibres tying the top surface to the bottom. This allows the floor to be inflated to a higher pressure and maintain its shape.

:lol: That is the funniest thing I've read for a loooong time! 10KM for the first paddle is tough enough, but in a deflating kayak!!! WOW!

I'm pleased you are enjoying your kayaking experience! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Were you using Tamban as bait? You will need a baitfish 6+ inches long for the bigger Macks. Big poppers will also work for big Queenies or Macks, but you need a stiff rod to get the POP!

30lb wire line - about 6 inches long. If you can get a good sized live bait with a size 5/0 circle hook. Tie about 6 to 10 feet of 40lb flouro carbon to the wire trace and use a balloon as a float! Rompin style! If you use a circle hook - let the fish tke the bait, let it run for about 10 seconds an...

When you get it, please read the inflation instructions. With the high temps in Borneo, the air will expand in the hot sun, so please be careful not to over-inflate.

Cheers and enjoy the ride!

Mine has been going strong for 4 years now - despite being subjected to 30degC+ temperatures almost every weekend and not being washed or treated with UV protecting chemicals! OK, it is looking tired, but it still works!

Alex, I am concerned. Are you saying you deliberatley went out, knowing a thunderstorm was coming?

Rods, net, paddles and even a human above the waterline is a target for lightening strikes! If a thunderstorm is coming, the responsible thing to do is DON"T GO OUT!!

I've been in a convertible a few times on the sea and have friends using them regularly for crossing over to nearby islands. They all have good reports, good tracking and a comfortable ride. As far as cleaning is concerned, you have a hot climate, so a quick rinse with fresh water, deflate it a litt...
