    Yak for two or more?

    Post by Neil Ingram on 3/2/2015, 10:02 am

    Kayaking is getting to be so popular that the companies are coming out with more and more in the way of kayaks. There are several just hitting the market that offer double seating and even a third seat for the small one or the pet. Many of these can be changed over to a single for when its just you out there or if you are after a serious fishing day. Over the next several days I hope to give you a listing of some of these and ideas of prices.

    Yak for two or more?

    I was just looking for some models for tandem kayaks. Test out before buying. They are great in some applications. Father/son is good, if son is small. Tandems can be heavy and costly. Some times it is easier to buy two. Also, if husband and wife, they can be tuff if you want to go different ways and do different things. A double or tandem can weight up to 75-100 pounds. Single can be around 45-60 pounds. Prices for singles can start around $250 and go up quickly. Prices for a tandem start around $600 - $800 and go up quickly. They are harder to improve your kayaking skills in a tandem. Make sure you can handle this by yourself in case your partner doesn't want to go. Many kids start to paddle a yak between 5-8 years old and if they get tired you can pull them in yours. Tandem yaks are in the past harder to sell. Some of that is changing. Easy to sell, sit on top, fishing yak. By far! By the way they make sit on top fishing tandems. We have one in the club. It changes to a single pretty easy. Jackson big tuna.
