Water leaks into one hatch, both need tuning with hatch awareness. More and evenly spread strap pressure ?
A bottle of rubber cement is on the triplist. Using Weldwood with excellent results.
There are several UTUBE how to pack videos. I read a knowledgable one, discovering at the end I was reading Gronseth.
2 results: add two water bags between legs before seat and add a kayak specific bag or 2 when packing first time on the ground.
Before leaving for the coast, I bought 'bags' but never packed or camped with the kayak. A few are 'backpackers" bags usefull only as an inside bag bag: way too fragile for a water environment. 2 types are HD but now not found online.
The videos are amusing when packer places bag after bag into yak, stops video, removes bags then continues video placing bag after....
The weight nears 75% of Current Designs capacity so I'll load up then try crossing the bay with a running tide and wind to see what for a trip around Cape Sable with 100 pounds water.
