answer 1
Depends on how far you are wanting to carry it. It weighs in at 48 lbs but is very awkward. There are not carrying handles placed to make transporting easy. With it being 12 ft long there is no easy way to carry it.

About 50 lbs. I have now problem putting it on my car. If you have to carry long distance to the water it might be a little difficult.
answered 10 months ago
By

answer 6
Yes, but it is difficult because of the double walls and lack of hand grips at the center. It's also a little heavy at close to 50lbs. But it can be carried by one person if the have some strength.

I believe you mean scupper holes. No, it does not. If the hull fills with water it has a drain plug to release the trapped water. Also, you don't really need scuppers, just get a hand held bilge pump or water pool toy.

It does have 1 but it is only in the front storage compartment, witch is useless except for people like me.

answer 5
No there are no drain scuppers. There is a drain plug mounted at the rear-most top of the kayak, It's a screw-in plug and not sure what the use should be since I would not expect any water to get into the sealed hull !

answer 4
It seemed pretty stable to me. I am older and have limited lower back flexibility. I was able to get in and out much easier than my last sit-on. It is quite wide and low to the water. The sides are low which seemed to make entrance and exit easier for me. It paddled easily and seemed to glide quite well !

Indentations on the top @ seat for laying your paddle across but so close to seat you'd have to have no stomach whatsoever. Also a secure loop on right side. I just lay mine over the "thigh protectors" and it doesn't slip.

Yes it does on the side of it ,, but its better to put it on top with you
answered 1 year ago

answer 4
Yes it does , on the right side there is a smaller bungee between two cleats and a hook , place paddle there and pull the bungee over paddle to the hook. Not the best system in my opinion but works. I do like the small indentions across the top of the kayak so you have some place to lay the paddle while you reach for your fishing pole when the fish strike

Does this kayak come with sand in it?

When transporting my kayak it sounds like it has sand and rocks in it? it sounds like sand is sliding from end to end and a rock tumbling on plastic from end to end?

Probably sand and or plastic pieces left over from manufacturing.

It's the plastic cut-out pieces that fall inside. Doesn't affect the performance but it is a bit disconcerting if you don't know about it.

Mine is exactly the same as you described. I just thought it was sloppy manufacturing with left over plastic beads from the injection mold process. But I don't know what the rock like noise is. I have been debating on removing the drain mount to have a closer look.

It's a kayak, not a boat. All kayaks rock but this hybrid is pretty stable once you get your "sea" legs.

By "rock" you mean from side to side: no more than any other kayak at this size. If you mean, is it a great kayak: yes, it is.
