Inflatable kayak navigating information

Check-list before starting

  • Check weather, local currents and wind conditions

  • Do not forget to advise someone on land of the time you plan to be back

  • Explain basic boat operations to all passengers

  • Make sure that one of your passengers can handle the kayak in case of emergency.

  • Be sure inflation pressure is correct
    Inspect the valve caps. Remove the self-bailer cap

  • Retighten the electric motor clamps if applicable. If it is not bolted, make sure you secure your engine with a safety lanyard attached to the bracket and the motor plate

  • Safety equipment (check local regulations) :

  • Personal flotation devices (PFD's) per person

  • The foot-pump, the paddles/oars, repair kit and tool kit

  • The other mandatory equipment

  • The boat papers and your boating license


On the water
Check that the load is evenly distributed. In normal conditions, the load must be distributed along the centerline of the kayak, preferably at the rear. For single-handed operation, remain on the starboard side to compensate the torque of the propeller

Under way
Respect the local regulations and practices. Do not make a sudden change in direction without advising the passengers. Make your passengers sit on the wooden seat (standard equipment) or inside the kayak

In case of incident
An inflatable kayak is practically unsinkable, even full of water. If after an accident, a compartment deflates, bring it inside the kayak and return at reduced speed. In case of a collision or an impact with a floating object, stop to examine the hull, the buoyancy tubes, the motor and its attachments and return to shore at a low speed. Take your kayak to your dealer for inspection before using it again.
