I recently bought my AE1041 and assembled it only once in my living room. Based on my assemblage experience, I think it's really value-for-money and overall a great kayak.

Needless to say I still need to try it in the water for proper testing, but I'm already able to make a few suggestions for future editions.

1. Attach a 5th fixed patch with a d-ring in the rear deck lacing. By seeing the picture below, I think one might agree it’s an added-value.

2. Add the bungee cord as well; after all, why were 4 d-rings installed without the cord?

3. Enlarge the front zipper because the kayak's bow has very precious room to put a 2 liters -or eventually a 5 liters- dry-bag; however, the zipper opening is so tight that one can’t pass anything there. That's disappointing because it's a waste of very valuable space...

For AE's consideration...

I like the bungee cord you've rigged on your deck. Looks like a good idea.
