[*]The search for a kayak to carry on the motorhome continues. Not being one to rush in head first I compared the specs of many small kayaks and list them below by length starting with the shortest.
Galaxy Cruz 283 x 82 x 35
Malibu Mini-X 283 x 85 x 30
Ocean Ranger1 285 x 85 x 30
Gosea 294 x 81 x 36
Raptor 295 x 83 x 38
The Raptor proved to be the longest I could fit diagonally across the rear of the motorhome.
Availiable from Kayaka214 on ebay
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
So what do you get.
It comes with 2 x storage hatches, 2 x flush rod holders, a deluxe rod holder, a large rear storage area with bungee, stainless steel fittings, moulded handles on the sides for one person to carry as well as carry handles for 2 people at the front and rear and a rear drainage plug (as per photo's).
The Raptor is made from 4.5mm polyethylene and is roto moulded for durability and comes with a long warranty.
Dimensions - L: 295cm, W: 83cm, H: 38cm
Weight: 22kg, will carry 1 person up to 130kg
Kayak
2 piece paddle and paddle leash
Deluxe high backed Padded Seat that gives lots of back support
2 x Flush Rod Holders to the rear of the seat
1 x Deluxe Swivel Scotty Rod Holder complete with a Scotty surface mount (wellnuts are moulded into the hull and screws supplied along with a tool to fit them)
6 x Scupper Plugs
Also currently included is a trolley and securing strap, this may change in the future to include a PFD instead but check the bundle offered at the time.

The camo colour of my kayak blends very well with the glass so using it for wildlife photograpy on inland waters should be a breeze.
There are two hatches with screw covers, both are watertight compartments with no access to the interior of the hull. Both are secured with a leash.[/url]

Handles moulded into the inside if the hull make for a clean no snag exterior.[/url]

2 Piece paddle stows conveniently in the motorhome.[/url]

The high backed deluxe seat is very comfortable and gives lots of back support.[/url]

Rear storage area with bungee straps provide room for your tackle box or dry box for snacks/clothes etc.[/url]

The lines are smooth making a good looking yak with uncluttered sides. A paddle park would be useful the camo colour great for inland but if you want to use it at sea I would recommend you go for a more visible colour for safety.[/url]

The lack of access to the hull is actually a plus as it makes the whole thing watertight. forward hatch great for stowing keys wallet and phone in dry bags to be certain they are safe whilst the hatch in front of the seat is a great bait/rig box.
