Grab line all around the Kayak may be a good idea for self rescue in the unlikely event of tipping over.

Yes i have been told they are hard to tip over but I managed it without to much trouble. :lol: :lol: I think it's and age thing..

in respect of the bungee straps. You can buy the bungee hooks and cord to the size you require... like 8 mm bungee cord by the mtr and in quite a few colours as well and The hooks either in plastic or metal coated in the same size as the bungee cord...

I think the stainless steel ones are great.

Great post.

Some times i have water pooling as well but have now sprayed the deck with the same waterproofer that is used to waterproof tents. Well not so much dripping through now. The deck lifter I first made was a thin glassfibre pole but it looked like it was going to poke through the sides of the Kayak and...

Thanks for the welcome and suggestions, but I don't think that I would make these modifications. I have seen a high back lumbar seat for the AF convertible but it is only available in the US and may cost a lot after tax and postage. Richard Strange again just found out the same myself. I think the ...

You should be able to sew on some D rings to the webbing of the seat straps the are attached to the inside of the kayak. Quite an easy task to do but the kayak will have to be fully deflated t...
