Care and maintenance

Keep the kayak out of the sun -Lengthy exposure to sunlight can make your boat’s bright, colour fade, hatch covers might get weakened and deform plastic elements, especially when left on top of a car with tight straps.

Keep the kayak clean - Wash your kayak inside and out with fresh water after every use. Rinsing off sea water will help preserve metal parts.

Keep the kayak covered - Use a cockpit cover to keep the inside of your kayak both clean and protected from the sun.

Skeg Maintenance - Be sure to regularly rinsing the skeg blade and slider areas.

Tight Hatches - If it’s difficult to fit the hatches, apply some silicone spray to ease the job.

Deck lines - Keep deck lines neat and inspect ropes for damages and tears regularly. Damage and gelcoat scratches - Inspect the gelcoat for damages regularly. Scratches through the gelcoat should be repaired.


When storing your kayak outside, keep it up-side-down. This is the best way to keep the kayak dry.

Be sure to keep the kayak out of direct sunlight. This is to best preserve hatches, ropes and the gelcoat pigment. Gelcoat pigment will fade due to the UV light.

If you store the kayak under a tar, be sure to have enough ventilation. Trapped moist may lead to osmosis.


When transported by car you should use a a padded roofrack or a cradle and webbing straps.
