    Can one person carry this
    by Dennis 5/12/2013
    6 answers
    • A. Depends on how far you are wanting to carry it. It weighs in at 48 lbs but is very awkward. There are not carrying handles placed to make transporting easy. With it being 12 ft long there is no easy way to carry it.

    • A. About 50 lbs. I have now problem putting it on my car. If you have to carry long distance to the water it might be a little difficult.

    • A. Yes, but it is difficult because of the double walls and lack of hand grips at the center. It's also a little heavy at close to 50lbs. But it can be carried by one person if the have some strength.

    Good starter fishing kayak
    5/23/2013

    Customer review by DjSchmeeJ

    4.0 stars 5/23/2013 by DjSchmeeJ
    by DjSchmeeJ

    This is my 5th or 6th kayak I have purchased. I have a nice 14ft perception touring kayak, but wanted something just for fishing. It paddles easy (the paddle that comes with it looks cheap, I use my own) and straight and is fairly steady.... you can't stand up in it if that's what you're looking for. It is a bit heavy at 48-50 lbs, and it is not completely sealed, so if you leave it out in the rain right side up water will get into it. But it has a drain plug. I suggest removing the piece on the hand grip that ties it to the deck bungee so it's easier to carry. Also suggest sealing everything better. And really needs a hand grip at the thigh pads so it would be easier to shoulder for transport. It's easy to fish from. The side walls are high enough that you won't get too much water in it, so you really don't need scupper holes. I mean... you're going to get wet in ANY kayak! There is residual plastic pieces inside that you can hear sliding around, and the cut out for the scotty rod holder falls inside when it's cut... so you'll hear that also. I put a fish finder and a couple of mods on mine easy enough, but you'll have to cut out the storage compartment to get access under the deck for the transducer. I have a video on youtube showing mine. All in All a good fishing or low end kayak to get into.

    I purchased at our local Walmart after looking and trying to research kayaks on-line and with friends. Local stores were selling it for $449.00 ! Tried it today and found it to be quite smooth in the water, easy to paddle, and quite stable ..not sure I could stand up in it, but I can move around some and that seemed nice. The cushions for the knees seem like a good idea, they may be place a bit too far forward for us shorter folk 5'8". There were two screws holding the seat back in place, one of them was cross-threaded (not sure if that was factory or Walmart associate problem#. I called KL Industries and they are sending me a replace "nut" #actually more of a moly fastener) at no charge. In the meantime I was able to use a die and carefully re-tap the existing nut and made the repair. Decals are "stick-on" type and easily damaged and were damaged from in-store handling but that doesn't affect the utility of the kayak. The paddle was an inexpensive model but is a good starter paddle or as a spare. The "towable" storage compartment is quite small with a relatively small hatch, but it might work fine ....there is no provision to attach a line to it for purposes of towing, but drilling a hole for that should not be a problem. I will most likely just remove that compartment and use the recessed space to hold other types of containers. The front hatch is very small and I'm not sure just what the use for it will be. It is about 6" deep and 5" in diameter ! All three rod holders should be useful and the "Scotty" adjustable front rod holder is extra nice. The seat seemed comfortable although I didn't do a "long-term" test .

    I have had my Journey for 2 years now and I just love it. Very stable (have only dumped it once and that was because I was being careless). Plenty of room for fishing or camping gear. I learned last week that if I remove the tow-able on the front that area becomes my dogs seat for a long float down the river. (now that I know she loves to kayak with me she will be getting her own lifejacket) The only issue I have had it that on really hot days the plastic becomes softer and the rivets that hold the adjustable seat back pop out. Easily solved by using an inexpensive boat cushion as a back rest (which serves as an extra pfd if needed). I am on the river most days that I am off. Many great adventures ahead for us now because my hubby is getting the Journey 10' Sit On, can't wait!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    This boat is perfect for lake fishing. Light enough to be easily carried by one person. I've carried it over half a mile to remote spots comfortably. I recently mounted a fish finder and trolling motor along with an anchor system. I couldn't be happier with this boat.

    Purchased this at Walmart for $449 as advertised and I'm very pleased. There are pieces of plastic that slide around inside but that doesn't affect the performance. I didn't know what they were at first until I did some research and found out they were plastic cut-outs that drop down inside the hull in the manufacturing process. There is a website for Klindindustries.com where you can contact the manufacturer. I've seen some negative reviews on various kayaking network forums and blogs but they are typically biased against Walmart and a bit snooty about the quality. I for one find no problem with the quality and the fact that it doesn't have "scuppers" (to let the water run off the top# is not a problem because I never had a problem with water getting in in the first place. If you are looking for a good working kayak #holds 390 lbs# at a light weight #48 lbs# for a really good price #$480+ after taxes) then this is the kayak for you.
