Re: Double Kayaks

I built the Sports Tandem so I can take my young kids out, without having to push a fullsize double. I installed rudder controls in front & the back so I can take my pick as to where to sit. Handling is best with adult in the bow & child in the stern, especially cross winds as the bow with a light load in front is like a sail. But they prefer to sit in the bow so they can see what is going on. Maybe I'll install some ballast & a bow thruster to help. I made up cockpit covers for transporting, which can also be used if I want to paddle solo (but then I use my other sea kayak)
