Iím curious to hear how this works, been thinking about a small kayak to throw in my boat for duck hunting some of the shallower tidal areas. Just anchor the boat and jump in the kayak cuz like you said, launching the boat at obscene hours to get a blind is getting harder to justify.

Very nice boat ,but more than I wanted to spend.
Look on craigslist, or call the HQ direct. They sell factory rejects, ie scratched for about $600.

Yes ... the wife can handle the Prowler 13 on the water no problem. It is a bit challenging for her to load and unload on her own.
I know several guys who use bed extenders and like them. I transport on a roof rack.

Get the wheelez beach cart with the large wheels. They aren't cheap but work great on everything from soft sand to large obstacles. I've even stacked two kayaks on top of each other and it held up fine.

We use a micro trailer to haul our kayaks. It sure makes loading and unloading a breeze. Found it on craigs list a few years ago. The Feel Free lure kayaks come with a wheel built in on the stern to help with transporting to the water.

I have a Iron Panther utility trailer to get to and from the launch.

Thinking I should get some sort of dolly for my wife to use.


For you guys with kayaks is there any must have gear besides the basic stuff which you take?

Spend the extra money on a good paddle. The cheap ones are awful if you have to go more than a couple hundred yards.

I bought this one. Came today.

All the reviews of the H 12 said get a longer paddle. Got it in 250 cm..

Not past buying another one if it doesn't work out.

If you rattle can one of these plastic kayaks does it stick well or does it chip off easy? Wife got a couple Costco kayaks from a friend for free and I may have to modify one. :chuckle:

Not sure. But there are a lot of YouTube of guys doing it. Or making covers for them.

I ordered mine in Olive green. And they make a bind for it.
