TIP: Carrying Sections

If you open that stern and bow hatch cover (the one in the photo is closed) and stick it inside the hatch itself, it makes the boat section much easier to grab. Now you have a "handle" that permits you to hold the section, no longer like a cumbersome oversized object which you have to hug with your arms, but as something you can hoist with one hand if you must. Just put your hand in the hatch and carry.

    I have made a small handle that can be easily attached to two bolts that are normally used to connect both parts of the Valley Aleut II tandem kayak. My wife and I use it every time that we have to lift the heaviest (rear) part off our car roof, or if we have to walk with it. Very practical.
