Plenty! This is clothing and linens for the both of us for two weeks, charcoal, chairs, umbrella, hammock, personal flotation devices, snorkle masks with flippers, and of course the fishing rods!
With 14 cubic feet available, I got it all in the boat, except for three large bags that I will strap to the top. It will all be tarp covered, as we are expecting rain tomorrow during our drive up north.
We picked up these black flexible baskets for storage in the Kayak, and they work very well. They are flexible, lightweight, and fit in the hulls of the craft nicely.
We met this lovely couple at Burt Lake State Park in Tuscarora Township, Michigan to show them our W Kayaks, and they ended up taking one home!
The accessibility and stability of the W500 made this an easy decision for our customer.
We came up with this easy way to transport our W kayaks securely on the back of our F-150 pickup truck.
A couple of two by fours, J-hooks, U-bolts, washers and nuts and we can hold one or two kayaks at a time. This easy solution can be ported to any truck application. Just take the measurements, drill the holes and install the hardware!
The wingnut you see between the tie down and the W Kayak is the top of the J-hook. The underside is busy holding the two by four to the truck railing.
We were a little nervous that the wingnuts would gouge our kayaks, but once they were strapped down, the didn’t move at ALL. I thought about putting some grip tape or no-slip decals on the two by four surface that contacts the kayak, but that would be overkill.
We took our W Kayaks up to our favourite place in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Del Les Resort, on Little Lake. This is up in the Taquamenon Falls area.

Little Lake is perfect for paddling, with lots of nooks to explore. Next time, I’ll spend more time on Lake Superior!
