Why is there water inside my kayak?
Water can seep through screw or rivet holes, and it is normal to take on a small amount of water while kayaking. Sit-insides can get a bit more water due to splashing water from paddles or waves. We recommend draining the water out of the kayak after each use.
Should my hull have water in it?
Even if the Bilge happily carries on being bailer for your boat, water constantly in the hull is not a good thing. Boats cores are made of wood, the meat filling in fibreglass sandwich. Over years the water will find its way into the tiniest of pin hole in that sandwich and once in it is trapped.
Do you stay dry in a sit in kayak?
The downside to sit-on-top kayaks is that you’re guaranteed to get wet while paddling, while sit-inside kayaks allow you to stay dry.
