What do you do to maintain and clean your kayak?

That's because you hunt with those behemoth Chessies, and those giant labs are just as bad... get a nice svelte Golden Retriever and they won't be tipping your canoe over.   ;)   :chuckle:

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I have a 55lb lab. I manage her weight. And I think I can hunt her out of the right kayak. I hope.

We will see . I ordered a H 12 today. And once I get it ,I will go to work figuring out how to retrieve my dog. I have a dog ramp ,but it maybe too heavy for the yak.

I am looking at a couple others.

I gave sit on tops a good look ,but It seems you have to be wet if you run one.
I think I can stay a lot dryer and warmer in the H 12.

I may not get the dog thing worked out this season ,but I am confident I will be running my dog out of the H 12 by next season.  We will see.

I am hoping my wife likes the H 12, so that I can have two. But if not will be searching for a yak for her before spring.

Than I am going to give someone a good deal on a 16 ft aluminum boat and trailer.

Sorry for the late response ...
I love the Prowler for what it is. Light, fairly nimble easy to paddle kayak that will get me to my spot and allow me to retrieve ducks.
If you are looking for a kayak to use as a floating blind and/or bring a dog with I'd recommend looking for a SOT kayak over 32" wide. The Prowler is only 27. Fortunately many of newer fishing kayaks are going to wider more stable boats.

Forgot about OP's real question. I don't hunt with a dog, but there is a zippered place for your dog behind you. And as I mentioned before, incredibly stable. The only way I've been able to flip it was to sit with my legs in the water and bounce really hard 2-3 times. I stand up bass fish all the time in this boat.

I ordered a H 12 Asend. They are 34 inches wide. Should be here around the 14 th.
I got the Olive green one.  Will buy the blind for it next year. I am hoping my wife likes it. Because than I will buy another. Thus during duck season I will have one for a hunting buddy to use.

How about ad ons. Anyone add anything after market?
Lights? Ect.

And what about paddles? Man there are a lot of those to choose from.

I ordered a 250cm paddle because the reviews on the H 12 said a longer paddle worked better.
