I'm having trouble finding spray skirts that fit this kayak - do you have any recommendations?

Asked by: Skiffle
Unfortunately, we do not have any spray skirts or cockpit covers for the tandem kayaks.

We have an ARGO 136XP TANDEM and would like to replace the dry cargo bags as ours have small holes in them. Both the stern bag and the small bag in the middle of the boat. Do you sell these parts? I also need a screw for the foot pedal mounting

Asked by: Bill
The bags required would be PS1421 4 inch day hatch and bag, the bag is not sold seperately you would need to purchase the entire hatch. PS1301 is the bottle holder. The screw for the foot pedal is available in our hardware kit PS1003, you will receive a number of different screws, rivets, bungee hooks and j hooks. The screws in this kit are the ones we use for the installation of the foot pedals.

Two questions:  Will this kayak float if filled with water, such as from a capsize?  Do you make a fitted cover for transporting on the roof of a vehicle?

Asked by: Cocoonr
We have additional flotation ( Foam Blocks) inserted in the Kayak for it to float if completely filled with water. And no, we don't carry a cover for our Tandem kayaks.

Hello. I see Sportcheck has the Pelican Argo 136XP and Canadian Tire has the Pelican Alliance 136T. I can't easily see what the difference between the two would be. Can you help clarify what the differences are? It would be for my wife and daughter (12).

Asked by: Jay
Great question! Both Kayaks have the same hull shape and are the same model but the Argo XP has the most upgraded accessories- Paddle Tie-Down on the sides, Seat Cushions, Quick Lock hatch, Mesh bottle holders, 4 inch Day Hatch, etc.

Can this kayak be used on the Delaware River? There are some rapids and high rocks in the Delaware River.

Asked by: XFoosMe
We do not recommend our products be used in rapids with rocks as this could damage the boat. Our products are made for calm waters.

Is the tandem kayak ok for an adult and small child? Do you need to balance the weight?

Asked by: Adlocks
It is recommanded to balance the weight as much as possible, if you feel a little unstable you can always add more weight in the area where your child is seated such as your gear or a backpack.

is there enough room for a small dog in the front and a medium dog in the back?

Asked by: sanmeowski
It is not about how much space you have but more about the weight capacity the boat can handle. Capacity 500 lb - 227 kg The rest is to your discretion.

How about stability,etc for one person to use?

Asked by: yakster
We do not recommend to use a tandem for 1 person. It will not be as stable and the tracking will not be as expected. You would need to add a weight on the empty seat to even out the stability.
