Greetings Fellow Anglers and Paddlers!
Short on space but really want to own your own kayak? Don’t have a vehicle capable of transporting a kayak on the roof?
I have the answer for you:
I know… it looks shady, but hear me out.
I purchased one of these last year when I owned a smaller car and really wanted a kayak. This modular ‘yak breaks apart into two easily transportable sections and slides together on a ratchet system. A small amount of water comes in at the seam when you’re out on the lake, but you get no more wet than you would normally. A sit-on-top Kayak is recommended for fishing over a sit-in for mobility, but it also means you get wetter.
I adore this kayak.
- Breaks apart for easy carrying/transporting
- Fun to paddle and easy to steer
- Has 2 pre-drilled holes right behind the seat that are perfect for holding extra rods.
- Paddle park included.
- Extremely comfortable with a great seat that has lumbar support you can inflate/deflate to your comfort level with one hand, which is important when you’re out for a long time.
- Plenty of places to hook on paddle leashes, an anchor, dry bags, and other things you don’t want to lose.
- Molded foot rests at different intervals to fit all heights.
- Supports up to 350lbs.
- Fits in the back of my Jeep Renegade Trailhawk when broken down into 2 pieces.
- The stern storage is a weird size that doesn’t fit a milk crate. But there’s ample space between your knees for a small tackle box with your fish grabbers and hook remover.
- The ratchet system takes a few times to loosen up and become easy to take apart/put together quickly. But, once you have the hang of it you can do it in less than a minute.
- The kayak is 9’8″ when assembled and with overlap of the sections they break apart into about 5 and a half feet each, so a small car would have trouble unless the trunk/back seats are able to hold them. I’d recommend measuring before purchasing.
These modular kayaks can also be loaded on a traditional J roof rack for transportation as well:
Happy ‘Yakking, friends!
