Description

How do you improve on an already great kayak?  Attach the Tandem Island’s ‘ama’ floats and ‘aka’ crossbars (out-riggers) and unfurl its square-topped sail, vertically battened mainsail, and you have a stable sailing craft whose seafaring heritage stretches back to the South Pacific.  A daggerboard prevents lateral slip, an upgraded rudder and rudder assembly provides control in a breeze; the ‘amas’ easily fold parallel against the hull to simplify negotiating tight spots or docking.  Or unbolt the sailing kit and enjoy a quiet evening of kayaking.  Both cockpits have steering and sail control lines, making it the ideal 2 person sailing kayak.
