a kayak followed me home...
...and the advice given here has proven reliable in the past, so here is my first question: would my factory cross bars (FORD) be secure enough for a small, fat, 40 lb sit-in kayak mounted on Yakima Mako Aero cradles, or are Yakima cross bars essential? Emotion Comet are the words on the kayak and it's around 9 feet long.
a cockpit cover is on the way. assuming you were planning to fish with this on small lakes, what else would you want to buy?
the owner has lent it long-term because spouse refused to let it back into their small home, it being one of three that lived there. we plan to fish together in sheltered places because i am sissy and not very strong.
