I just purchased a Pelican Premium Argo 136XP Tandem Kayak. When putting into the water I noticed there are 4 white styrofoam blocks (one on each side of seats). Were these blocks for shipping purposes or are they structural? Should I keep them?

Asked by: socherl
We recommend that you do not remove the styrofoam that is visible in the kayak as it acts as extra flotation. This extra flotation styrofoam, if removed, can be replaced with any styrofoam found at your local hardware store. The kayak, without this extra flotation, will still float and perform as it was designed for but will sit lower in the water. Unfortunately, we do not sell replacement foam.

Can the Pelican Argo 136XP be successfully operated by one person? How does it handle with one kayaker?

Asked by: Roberto
Yes it works fine with one person. A tandem is more cumbersome than a single but it works great.

How about stability,etc for one person to use?

Asked by: Yakster
It works fine with one person. I'm sure it tracks better with two people but it still works fine with one. I do it all the time.

Argo 136 xp tandem. Can One person operate this model in a reasonable fashion ?

Asked by: Steve from Canada
Tandem kayaks are made for 2 people, you will find it difficult to use if you are alone. You can always add a weight to distribute the weight evenly.
