When you're ready to add an outrigger kit to your sailing kayak, check out Expandacraft. Lots of options and far more stability.

did you make your sail? You explained how to make the mast and the mounting, but what about the sail? Without the sail, the rest is really kind of pointless.

Thank you, Mr Inventor! Brilliant work! I especially appreciate the way you put the fins through the scupper holes to aid the steering - it makes perfect sense! I've been trying to figure that out for a while!

Suggestion: To aid in the balance, you could strap some thick "swimming noodles" on the sides and secure them to a crossbar or through the scupper holes.

You should put cleats on both sides of the kayak so u don't have to hold the rope.

Rulof, you need to put the sail up higher so you don't have to go under it like that. It would also be cool if you did an update video with that and a keel on the bottom :)

Add 2 sealed pvc pipe on each side of the boat, like a trimaran or even better (smaller), make the tube assembly slide laterally.
Or one sealed pvc pipe you can rotate from one side to the other, below the kayak, perhaps even using the mast/sail to do the rotating,

Aluminium and salt water dont mix together ,unless its marine grade special aluminium.Othervise it will "rust"and be eaten away by salt.Even near salt water regular aluminium has shorter life than away from sea water.There are some other mistakes when it comes to rudder -its too long and its not wide enough ,you want a shorter but wider one ,that is thin .Door hinge is ok system to mount it just use stainless steel.We in Croatia next to you traditionaly build steering on boats from wood with 2 hinges.
You wanna consider to install keel-the longitudinal structure along the centerline at the bottom of a
vessel's hull, on which the rest of the hull is built, in some vessels
extended downward as a blade or ridge to increase stability. Most of sailboats have it.

zumbazumba1 + Video shows his craft performing very well, so rudder and center-of-resistance fins must be just fine.
Ewan Maycock
Ewan Maycock - 4 years ago
Nah man it doesn't rust it corrodes- the protective oxide layer it forms stops it from actually rusting. Aluminum is fine to use on boats but attaching a sacrificial anode of a more reactive metal is a good idea because it will corrode first and keep to aluminum intact.
