I was in QC City last week and saw these one at a local shop for 169$

I am sure it could be fitted easily on a yak and do a great job.

If I ever get around to building some outriggers I think I'll try these.

  they go on for $9.99 each quite often.
  I don't "need" outriggers but would love to make some for fun

BTW the pedastal seat is killer  :D

Right Bellybuster,

   Those are pretty interesting too. But as much as all this rigging

has got me all lathered-up, I wont be doing anymore before next year.

I'll just spend ( pun intended ) the rest of the year on fishing... :D  ;)

Yep, those are the ones that I ripped off. I thought about ordering the floats, but the price after shipping was a bit high.

Are you saying that you had them on and then you took them off?

What was the reason? And I have another question, is 24 in. really

long enough for the arms, do they not hinder you paddling stroke?

Hey Singingdog,

You must've missed this post, so I'll try again, please tell me about


those original floats...


Oh! and thanks for your answers to the other questions ;D


No, I didn't have those on originally. By "ripped off", I meant that I stole the general idea of that particular o'rigger design.

24" is plenty long enough for my needs. If you are worried about the location interfering with your paddle stroke and your other outfitting, you could mount the o'riggers to the front of your boat.

Thanks for the response. I did a " mock purchase " for those floats

 at  http://www.yak-gear.com/

the total w/shipping came out at $40. & change...what did your

price come out as?

Laurentian, I think the plan is to have the pontoons in a stowed position while paddling and then deploy them when you are ready to stand and fish.

If you kept them back far enough they wouldn't interfere with your paddle stroke.

Thanks Jediangler, then I'm in trouble what with my crate, which

I definitely must have, well  ::) as long as I keep this kayak...

Hey guys, all you outriggeRERS  ;D,

I've got a few questions; as I peruse all your great efforts,

my yak is a bit busy and I don't want to make a mistake. How is it

going with your paddling stroke? Do you have to shorten your stroke

so as not to hit the outrigger arms?

Only if I paddle with the outriggers deployed, then only a little bit. If I am paddling any distance, I just pop up the rodholders and swivel the arms onto the back of the yak (check the 5th picture in my original post).

Wouldn't zip-ties be better than

duct tape, won't the tape unravel?

Maybe. I got that recommendation from a guy on another board. So far, the tape is holding fine. 

And last, isn't there any drag

when you paddle? I thought: what if you tilt the "toon" maybe

5 degrees up on the front, wouldn't that reduce drag?

Yes, there is drag if I paddle with my outriggers deployed. Tilting them up a bit would definitly help. I tried to keep mine perfectly level for maximum flotation.
