Actually, seam splits are nearly impossible to effectively repair. When they're on the seam like that, since there is a small gap between the tube material and the weld, those splits like to run. Also, from the looks of your pics, it looks like you are using PVC tarpaulin patches instead of un-reinf...

The conversion decks simply add a covered, cockpitted position to the kayak for protection from the elements. They do not add any rigidity whatsoever to the kayak.

Hey Zak, Ok, so I saw the video, as well as the others that you posted to Youtube of the kayak fully inflated and being paddled out on the water. It looks like the boat is setting up perfectly and it looks really great on the water! It should be noted that the Velcro is not meant to be a component o...

Watched the video and have to say that it's too hard to tell exactly what's going on because you never fully inflate the kayak. Since all of the kayaks are hand made, the Velcro does not always fully line up even, edge to edge. This is why the Velcro strips are so large, so that they can align on th...

Your situation definitely sounds out of the norm. The inflation order would not affect things, only pressure does that. It's hard to know what's going on without pictures. Please contact customer service at info@advancedelements.com with some pics so that we can help you out.

No reason at all. There's a guy in Gilroy, CA who did a 30+ day, 1,500 mile trip down the Yukon river in his AdvancedFrame Convertible with single deck conversion.

Yeah, due to the floor now being a rock hard platform, with no give to it, your feet will sit up higher, although not by much. With that said, I have size 11.5 feet and do not have any issues with that setup in the Expedition so here's some suggestions: (1) Take your shoes off if you're not doing th...

Not sure either way on finding a used one. I have not really seen any go up used, but I don't know. AE does not "clear out" end of the year stock/models and they don't sell direct anyways, so any discount/deals would be through a dealer. The only time you'd find a "closeout" item so to speak is on A...

I think that you'll fit just fine. You might find it a little tight...maybe, but I don't think so. You will want the Elite though. The original AirFusion will be too small for you. The Fusion Elite does behave very similarly to a hard-shell, but you will notice better stability. The gear you are des...

The Elite would be fine for your foot size...you'll have to take your shoes off though. As a matter of fact, if you're not doing that already in your AF Ex, give it a try there too. Jcooley paddles both the AF Ex and Fusion Elite in races with size 13's and does not have problems. The Fusion Elite i...

The KayakPack is the same exact size as the duffel bag for the AE1007 AdvancedFrame Convertible, so it will most certainly fit. Actually, every one of our kayak models fit within the AE3011 Kayak Pack.
