MKII Quattro as Single

Post by redrhino »

All, my LH MKII Quattro is inbound and I purchased the solo spray deck as well so I can paddle tandem or solo. Anyone have tips / tricks for getting the kayak set up to paddle solo?

If you’re in the middle position, you’re all set. I used a double Klepper as a solo boat for a few years before I started accumulating solo kayaks.

Agree with Mike, I also paddle and sail my double solo with no problems. I do change paddle length for the double, I use an insert on a Lendal that converts my 215cm to a 240cm. I find that I need the longer paddle to adjust for the higher and wider Klepper double.

Best,

Thanks all, very helpful! I'll definitely look at the paddle extension.
