Hey yoregano, was my post ok? I don't want to take up any extra bandwidth on this forum with unnecessary content.

I'd say you're up the creek without a paddle.

the actual page says not available online, store pickup only. Got a menards nearby?

Damn, great deal but no Menards in PA.

If this is the same model that they sold last year, because the bottom is so flat, the kayak will never track on a straight line, so with every paddle the kayak will turn. It's frustrating to use. If you're handy, you can rig up a fixed rudder to the bottom to counteract the constant change in direction with every stroke.

Technically, not the same but functionally probably very similar. I haven't stopped by yet, but at this price it is very tempting....

Last year's thread

Aruba model


I would not worry too much about a flat bottom on a Kayak of this size. I have a couple Old Town Otters with flat bottoms and have no problem paddling around lakes and ponds. The great thing about a 10" kayak is the ability to toss it in the back of the station wagon which takes seconds. Anything larger and it would need to be up on the roof.

Some inflatables would cost you more than $150. For a hard shell boat, it's unbeatable.

the closest store is in Wyoming, ridiculous. will pass. thanks OP.

Why would you need a free shipping code? Just paddle it home...

A 10" kayak? Heck you can just throw that thing into your pocket!

LOL, I always get that wrong! 10 foot Kayak, not 10 inch.

Just got one of each color. Can't wait to try them out....thanks OP!

Sweet - I am hoping to get a rebate check this week to offset some of the cost of 2. Any initial thoughts on quality?

I've never kayak'ed before, so this will be a new experience! We live near a reservoir and wanted something not too expensive to try out to see if we like kayaking. I don't think you can beat the deal. We got the last lime green one (was the display). He wouldn't give any further discounts on the display one. He said menards would be losing too much money with the 11% rebate (he said they pay 155, and with the rebate it's already 150).

How do I attach it to my car? Hmmmm. Ropes?

Something like this is probably best: Link

You can edit your first post instead of making a new one.

Yeah you basically have to have cross bars on your roof. I've tried it without them and it's messy.
I bought two hangers per kayak to hang my kayaks on the wall. It's great because you can put the kayaks on your wall in the garage so they're out of the way.

If you don't have a roof rack...? Are there loops you can run rope through?

you can buy a cheap foam block kit to mount on most car roofs;

but I'd still highly recommend a conventional roof rack for regular use

My original link double posted, so I edited post 2 so it wasn't the same. Is there a way to delete a post? Sorry for the newbie question. I searched, but couldn't find an answer.

Oh, okay. No, you can only edit posts. Only moderators can delete posts, and they’ll only do that if the contain inappropriate content (and someone alerts them). You could erase the entire content of a post, leaving only a period or say “double post” or such.

Those hangers are a great find. Thanks for posting this to the forum. I have 2 kayaks that I store in the basement leaning up against each other and it takes up more room than I like. I often thought of brackets. This is going to be perfect and cheap! $5.68 each
