My Hobie Revo 13 - With Outriggers and Sail

Post by canaryfisher » Tue Mar 31, 2015 4:24 pm

So My dad and me (mainly my dad) made some outriggers for my kayak and I ordered a sweet 2.5m sail from ebay that fits to hobie kayaks and was with the full kit (cheaper then hobie).

The outriggers each weigh in at 1kg and later will have a netting or tramp material that will go across from the outriggers to the kayak so I can put stuff on them.

I think they look awesome, going to test them out tomorrow and will be using the sail and outriggers for the weekend :D

My dad welded them. Made with aluminum and stainless steal. He is a marine welding specialist, he also made me the box for camping trips.

Sail was great. I think its bigger then the hobie one you can get for revos by .5m or 1.5m one of those. I tested it out in 10knot wind and was cruising at 9.2knots on the GPS. I need to figure out a line system for when I furl it up so its not out and have some kind of clip so I can take the rope down.. cause when you catch a fish it is kinda hard to reel in with a rope traveling from the back through the middle to the sail..
