Well I am still young enough to get the yaks on my trailer. But the wife wanted some way she could load without much muscle. Also she pointed out we are not getting any younger.

I ordered a hydraulic lift and a buddy made a bracket so it would fit in a stake pocket.

After I messed around for awhile with different sling options, the wife and nurse figured I had suffered enough and figured out this sling. Since she uses lifts like this every day lifting people she knew exactly how to do it.

That may provide useful for a lot more that the boats.

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.

Time to be looking at the kayaks and do a little maintenance while we have the good weather.

Looking at keel protection before the waterfowl season. Any ideas.


This looks good. Anyone use it.

Watched a video on it looks easy. Might give it a try.

Just got a deal on a Asend H 10. Going to pick it up tonight. Used once, lady had health issues. $400.00

Wife wanted to try a shorter version than the two H 12 we have.

For you guys with the Ocean Kayak, did you take a look at the Malibu?  http://www.cabelas.com/product/Ocean-Kayak-Malibu-Two-XL-Angler-Sit-On-Top-Kayak/2256948.uts

A little late.  I got this in urban camo second hand.  Paddles well single or double, stable enough and fast enough through the water, and tracked straight enough in a 12 knot headwind with whitecaps.   Biggest downside is 14' and about 100 lbs., so loading/unloading and hauling is a chore.   I would buy another.  Only fished and paddled out of it, though.

The H 12s are 76 lbs with out any gear in them. That's about as heavy as I would want to go . The H 10 is 55 lbs so almost 20 lbs lighter.

Don't really care for the sit on yaks. Feel like a bobber on them.

The H 10 still has a payload of 400 lbs which I like.

Put a lift on my trailer so when I am older I can still load them. Turning 68 this year.

Do you have a link to the interior lights that you have on your Kayak by any chance? Really liking the idea of having them on a remote like you have. Do you have a picture of your H12 with the blind setup for hunting?

I got the lights at Costco. But you can find them at most hardware chains. Lowes or Home depot.
They run on three AAA come in a six pack with remote and have 4 colors. Plus each light can be turned on by just pressing them.
I put hem under the gunnels with all weather double face tape.

The headlight comes from Walmart boating dept. about 35.00.
