Default Just got 2 Kayaks

Old Town Otters... seem like a nice starter boat. Have the spray skirts with them too

Cup holders leave something to be desired though.

THere nice boats, I got mine a long time ago. Eventually, the foam in the front and rear come loose as there is only 1 screw holding it in place.

Cool! That's what my family started with, too. I think my Wife and I are going to buy another pair to play with for next summer.

Yeah, really shallow ones between your legs, I will have to get a pic tomorrow, I forgot about this post.

Does anyone know if you can get aftermarket foot braces or where to look for them? This is the low end otter that didn't have them, I looked at a pelican and it looks like they just go in there with 2way tape.

Ours look like this... only they have black stripes on them too I think..



Now to just get a Kayak rack system....

I belive we have the aftermarket foot braces at Rocky's. Give me a call at work, 8107425420 and I will look to see if we still carry them, defently a recomendation, it stucks padling without them! Ask for Cody if you call or come in.

I have an otter. It's got the cupholder which is badass, and the foot thing. But the paint job is kinda homosexual.

I would, only I made a promise to myself never ever to shop at Rocky's again the way the way I was treated a few years ago. (By the General manager no less)

Looking at these
