Official Kayaking/Canoeing Thread

Didn't see one of these threads here and it seems like we have quite a few people on here that kayak/canoe/raft. Post what boats you have (pics if you have any!), modifications you have made to it, etc. Talk about upcoming/past trips you have made!


I have a 11' Perception Rhythm Sit in kayak. The boat didn't come with drain plugs (weird for being a sit in) so I added a drain plug at the bow and stern. Also added 3 anchor points to either tie stuff down on top of the storage lid or attach my anchor to so I can float in one area. Next mods will be a fishing rod holder, better anchor system (so I can control where the anchor is on the boat), and a paddle holder.




Not mine but a better view of the deck layout:




Lets see what you all got!

We kayak both forks of the St. Lucie River, Indian River Lagoon, The Sandbar and take them camping to paddle the springs in central Florida.

Did a midnight kayak/canoe trip down the river with my cousin and a bunch of his friends. That was awesome! It was interesting piling 3 people per canoe though. Glad I had my own boat so I could just sit back and watch everything unfold.

Nice Perception Aaron & thread!
I just got out of the water at Kennebunk pond in Maine on my Perception Swifty. I really wanted to buy a Wilderness Systems Tarpon this summer but the funds did not work out. How do you like the Perception model?

Thank you. I love the Wilderness Systems kayaks. I was just about to buy the Pungo 125 but had a few things come up that made me drop down to a less expensive boat. It is a love hate relationship with my kayak. I have only had it since March and the piece that connect the seat to the bottom of the boat has already broken off, the bottom right below your knee has a concave dip in it. Have not even drug it over any rocks or sat it out in the sun! The place I bought it from is one of those factory second dealers so I have a feeling it is going to be a p.i.t.a. to do anything with warranty. Otherwise, I don't mind it too much. The seat thing is un-noticable so I dont mind that but the dip is a bit aggravating. Kinda wish I saved up the money again and bought the W.S.

It's a 10 footer. It doesn't track straight, but it's my first one and I like it.

I've got a Future Beach fishing kayak (the one on the left). It's got a dihedral hull which is great for side to side stability, however it turns like a brick. My gf has a Dagger Crossfire which is shown on the right. It's a lot more maneuverable than mine but takes more finesse to paddle straight and not turn. It takes using your hips which I am not good at.

I have a 10' pelican...basic but it's all i need since it's just for floating pretty much.


I do need to find a cup holder for it though, and maybe some paddle clips for the side.

It should fit. They are really made for canoes. My cockpit has a pretty wide lip as well. The top piece flexes pretty wide.
