Actually I have two questions. What are the little orange balloons for? How stable is this canoe in the ocean? I live on an island in the Caribbean. I will only be using it in the ocean so it is very important for it to be stable under those conditions.
In the event that your kayak were to flip over or take on water the orange balloons are designed to keep the kayak afloat. The Driftsun Transparent Kayak has been tested in a veriety of circumstanses and performs very well in both calm and choppy waters. Please note we cannot provide free shipping to Caribbean islands.
Do you ship to Hawaii Island?
We do not currently offer free shipping to the Hawaiian Islands. However, you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for shipping quotes.
What is the thickness of the polycarbonate?
The thickness of the Transparent Kayak hull is .25"
How durable is the plastic in terms of being scratched?
The Driftsun Transparent Kayak has a scratch resistant UV protective coating and by following some simple common-sense steps you can easily avoid conditions that lead to scratches.
Make sure to spray down your kayak with fresh water after each use. Particulate matter (salt, sand, dirt) is what will lead to scratches in the long term.
Also, make sure to never drag your kayak on the ground. When you're done paddling, be sure to pick your kayak up out of the water before it has chance to drag on any sand/rocks/grass/etc.
Any plans to produce a solo transparent kayak?
The seats can be configured on this model to accommodate 1 or 2 paddlers. They are removable and adjustable.
What is the width of the seat? And general the dimension of each? Thank you
Back Rest - 18”(L) x 20”(W)
