water inside my yak?
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:26 AM »
So im kinda new to the kayak scene, and after paddling around in the ocean for about 2 hours, this much water had collected inside. Is this to be expected? I m not sure if there is such a thing as a normal amount of water to pool up inside. didnt tip, landed easy, there was a bit of spray over the bow, but nothing crazy.

Very well could be normal, if you were taking waves over the front even if not frequent.  Some yaks seal much better than others.

Ok thanks for the reply. It's always bone dry in there when I come off the lake, but this was after I landed out of the ocean.
