Does any on paddle a Perception Tribe ? I am looking at the 11.5 and the 13.5 SOT
I looked up Liquid Logic but the only available 1 seater sit on top is too small, only 10 feet, and is built as a whitewater/touring hybrid. I need the cargo area to stick my dog in.Oh, I bought a Liquid Logic Duece Coupe, it can hold 2 adults and a small kid or dog, it weighs 65 pounds, but has like 6 cup holders and 2 hatches on it. it was $900
I thought about one of those, they look so cool! The local outfitters store has kayaks you can rent to try out, but I don't think they carry those kayaks. I'd definitely want to try one before I bought one. I am a little worried if my dog ends up in the front of the kayak it will hinder my foot paddling abilities.If you are looking for SOT don't forget to try out a Hobie Mirage Drive Kayaks. These are the ones that you can peddle with with feet and paddle. They are not cheap but are total game changers as to SOT Kayaks. They are great for fishing if that's what you are into. Because you are using your legs, you can go all day and not get tired.
if you are lucky you may find used ones on Craig's list for $600.
Does not really matter with a sit on top. I usually haul my whitewater SOT on it's side, simply for tie down convenience.When you have a kayak loaded up on a roof rack, is it better to have it sitting right side up? or upside down? or does it really matter?
Kayaking weather is almost here!!! :razz:
Thanks! My question had gotten buried under other threads so I had given up on it. I'd love to get kayak holders similar to the hullraiser, hoping to find some used since I already spent so much on the roof rack itself.Does not really matter with a sit on top.

Note: On a normal open hull kayak it is best not to strap down the while it sits on the ****pit rim or bottom of the hull. This can cause deformation of the rim/hull and possible crack it. Stacking on the side is generally safer (at least for whitewater kayaks).
