A common problem faced by paddlers each time they buy a new boat. Reasons for such problems can be placed in to one of two categories;
* The paddlers kit is letting the water in. * The boat is really leaking.
If your paddling kit doesn’t fit correctly it will leak and yes the boat will fill with water. If it’s a simple case of ill fitting dry top or deck then the solution may be easy but expensive – get some kit that fits. On the other hand your kit may need a little TLC – check seals/seams and repair or replace as necessary.
New for 2021 from Jackson is the Bees Knees Thigh Hook System. It’s a tool free light weight addition to your Jackson Kayak outfitting that gives extra support to your knees.
The Bees Knees gives all Jackson Kayaks whitewater boats a more secure knee fit for a better feel. This addresses the #1 request for improvement from our customers, and follows the JK way of valuing innovation and simplicity. They require no tools to adjust, and are comfortable and lightweight. These should work with every whitewater boat we’ve ever made (with the exception of kids’ boats).
Over the last few months we have seen a number of images on Instagram showing some really trick conversion kits that allow a K1 to be converted to a C1 without the need for lots of cutting/sticking of foam. We reached out to Paul Harwood at UK firm C1 Kayak Conversions to find out a little more about what they are doing.
