We just got our kayak (AE1007 convertible) and were having a tough time with the backbone installation until we came across this video. It answered all of our questions. Here's the link- ... dded#at=14

Hi Ronorliz

Between youtube and this forum all the questions should be answered and many more on ALL types of the advanced elements range.

Don't forget to take your camera when you make your first trip.
Looking forward to many of your postings.

I found I was doing it wrong by watching that video (I wasn't tucking the ends of the floor into the spade ends). Didn't seem to make any difference to the tracking though. I reckon my cockeyed paddling makes more of a difference.

There are a lot more videos around too. Go to AE's home website, select support, then video, to get to

There are videos showing how to repack kayaks, sails, use the valves, etc. Plus some good videos from ordinary users. Well worth a look.
