Built using our Twin Arched Multi Chine Hull, these kayaks provide excellent stability and combined with our spacious cockpits, getting in-and-out of a kayak, has never been easier! The ARGO 136X TANDEM is specifically designed for those looking to share an on-the-water adventure. At only 67 lb, you and your companion will have no trouble transporting and launching the ARGO 136X to wherever you decide to go! This kayak comes equipped with two large, easily accessible cockpits both featuring molded footrests, and adjustable Ergofit™ padded backrest providing you with good support.

When storing kayak outdoors in winter, do you set in flat (upside down) or on its side?

Asked by: Wuch
We always recommend to store your kayak right side up on a flat surface away from direct sunlight. The extreme cold may damage the kayak you might want to keep it under a gazebo or some sort of cover for protection. Depending on how severe your winters are.

Where would I tie down the bow and stern when in transport? Is there enough room for straps with hangers on the ends to pass through?

Asked by: Ryan051
It depends on the car top carrier, you should be able to pass the straps through the handle hole in the kayak. Not through the actual handle.

Is this unit ok for ocean use. Coastal and reef only

Asked by: Bob
Our products can be used in the ocean, however we strongly recommend you rinse them off with soft water after each use to avoid the hardware from rusting.
