Hi everyone, I have a rec kayak that I'm looking to make safer so I purchased some float bags for it, I just need a little guidance in installing them. They are the ones from Harmony, the one for the bow is specifically for 10' rec boats which mine is. It has the two gromits in the back to be tied to something, I'm just not sure what I'm supposed to tie it too. The one for the stern is pretty straightforward, I think, in that I just shove it up behind the seat and then inflate it.
While I'm asking questions, is there anyway to install decklines to it? It has some bungees in the back but I would just like to look into something better in case I have some problems and need to be towed.
I'm sure someone will suggest that I just buy a better boat instead of spend money on this one so I feel the need to explain myself. My schedule is too hectic for me to get out on the water as much as I'd like (right now I'd be happy to get out on the water two more times this year) so I couldn't justify spending a lot on a boat that isn't going to get used much. I had kept my eye on the local craigslist but never found a really nice boat on there. Anyway I just want to make this boat safer in the event it should capsize. I have been taking lessons so I'm trying to learn the correct safety and paddle technique, but for right now this boat is my "stead".
