Jay, that beauty would look awesome on top of my Yaris! Might even be able to float the Yar across the river with it.....
Seriously though, nice duct ta......I mean kayak!
Anyone know if the kayaks at Walmart are any good? I want to fish and do some floating and these are cheap they are only $250 thanks!
I am also curious if anyone has tried one.... I love the idea of cheap boats that you can leave on top of the truck, not worry about when you leave it at a trail head while riding or hiking...
PS the kayak is cleaned and on the water.

So how do you like that new kayak? Does it handle well? is it stable? Have you fished out of it yet? Is it roomy or tight squeeze?
It's wide (30") so it's not the fastest things in the world, but it tracks well and is very stable.
The 250lb weight limit is pretty much spot on, so a grown man can't take much gear if any.
The storage in the back doesn't keep water out very well, so if you put anything in there use ziplock bags.
The entire hull is open, so you may want to stuff the front and back with styrofoam and/or airbags.
The foot pegs are strong, but only made to fit a 6 foot person at the most.
And I recommend puting something under the front edge of the seat. It will stop any plastic on plastic rubbing/tapping and cushion the seat a little. (I use a large sponge which also collects drips from the paddle etc...)
That's all I can think of, hope it's helpful.
I got both my kayaks off craigslist. I have a green old town sea otter for my fiance and a yellow walden naturalist for myself. They both track pretty well and are great boats for what we use them for. I am currently trying to rig them both up for fishing. I got the naturalist for $200 with a vest and paddle. The otter was $75. I like to think I got a pretty good deal on them! THe otter is much heavier than the naturalist but it's good and stable for her on the water.
