I bought it about 3 months ago.. and tested it on lake Eagle here in Texas, and it worked just fine... no speed records were set up during the tests but It did move the kayak at a constant speed... and of course the only way it was efficient was with the wind coming ...

Re: AFC2 in whitewater

Thanks for the input tntray, I will take it into consideration, My wife and I have paddle the Arkansas river here in Texas with very mild rapids I would say Class 0.5 and it handled very nice. Of course my wife wants to take it to a class III or IV. So will see..

Thanks.

Yes definetelly bring a foot pump with you and a water pump.. and thanks for that tip on the Tear-aid.. I usually carry duct tape with me and the repair kit from AE. I imagine this should do the trick if an emergency arises..

Re: Our review of our new AF convertible

Hello Mike Sue We also just bought our AF2 and we are having a lot of fun here in Houston, a quick suggestion is to build a trolly for your kayak, I build one using 3/4" pvc, bought a couple of plastic wheels from Harbor Freight (or Home Depot / Lowes) and you should be ready to roll in 30 min. you ...

AFC2 in whitewater

Assured I could not tip I hit the rivers. On one river class 2/3 immagine my shock when I tipped, not once but three times. A half submerged rock and a half submerged branch were the culprits. The kayak is stable but given the right conditions anything will capsize. Quoting John in a previous subje...
