If living here in Florida has taught me one, it is that heat is extremely hard on your gear. Then you add in saltwater, sand, and everything else conditions throw at us and it’s obvious, our gear takes a beating. I’ve always been concerned when hauling my ProAngler or even just having it sit in a parking lot out in the sun and what could happen to the hull. I have seen plenty of kayaks over the years that have deformed due to heat. In this video I show you how make a mod to one of the items Hobie currently sells for the Pro Angler.
With just a few parts from the hardware store, I no longer have to worry about the hull deforming on my kayak. I have included a detailed parts list in the description of the YouTube video.
