Red Snapper is one of my favorite fish to eat. I just wish I was better at catching them. I can't seem to get used to how fast they hit the line. Ya, you are right, not only do they hit the line fast, they spit the hook equally fast too. Lost a couple on my last trip. One moment I was fighting the ...

Is there anyway your able to remove a very small section of the bungee cord inside thus making it a little tighter. Also a spray with the same water proofing they use on tents will help to repel the water. Most spray skirts are sewn with cotton/ polyester thread and it takes time for the thread to s...

Hi MikeHermes
Welcome to the forum.

I just use a 3/4 inch push in fitting
works for me and can't see the need to use anything else.

I also can not see the need for the adaptor requiring a lump on it to keep the valve open.!!!!


Not required.

One adaptor should do all the inflation valves.

After inflation the deck lift has risen with the tubes and forms a nice shape. The pitfall is that there may well be an additional strain on the zip. The...

I do a weir every so often .

A few minor scratches on the bottom but the bigest problem has sometimes been the skeg.

It has hit the bottom quite a few times.
No damage though.

The fitted backbone made no differance at all.

Open canoes have no skeg and will take a hammering from time to time.
