kaiaksailor solution

Post by jobortega »

I own a Longhaul Quattro and wish to use a kaiaksailor sail. Does anyone know of an installation solution that works?

I can't say with certainty, but I believe that the mount that Gerald Grace at KlepperAmerica fabricated will work. https://www.klepperamerica.com/kayaksailor-sail-system/ It is a direct fit for the Klepper kayaks, using a 3-point system with two brackets on the combing and one through the mast hole. I have used one for a few years and it works just fine. I would check with Gerald.

Best,

The problem is that the set up takes out the front seat. In discussion with the kiaksailor team, they suggest rigging to the foredeck. But the design sloops a few degrees at that point making it necessary to buttress the base with a wedge of some kind. They claim it has been done and that this community can help me design one such gizmo.

Thanks for replying by the way,

Get the bigger sail if you sail in light airs. I have the smaller one and it's pretty wimpy in light winds
