    DryCase Smartphone Case
    You will immediately know you have a solid piece of gear in your hands when you pick up the DryCase Smartphone Case. It's patented design gives you "visible" confirmation that it is sealed. For just $40, you not only get the case but you get the flotation armband with it. The case also allows the user access to the headphone jack without exposing the phone to the elements. This product is in a...

    welcome everyone I am expedition sea kayaker, kayak fisherman (sometimes) and expedition kayak sailor. I have been releasing over the last few years that my passion for kayaking and sailing were coming together. We first started this site in 2012 and we used it to gather as much info about kayak sailing as possible. We figured that if we were looking for kayak sailing info, news then other new kayak sailors were looking for the same info. We decided to start building a kayak sailing community where we could post all the information and links in one place. We hope you like KSM.

    I have been sea kayaking for over 25 years I have been everywhere on the easy coast from northern Maine and the Maine Island Trail (MITA) to Key West and Flamingo. I have 2 young kids who are growing up quickly and I hope to start being able to plan some trips with them now.

    Welcome ALL!

    I'm Butch and a expedition sailor in Tampa Florida. I spend a lot of time on the water and enjoying the outdoors with my family and friends. Can't wait to see this forum grow and turn into a true resource for all the Kayak Sailors our there. I have a Hobie Tandem Island that has been highly modified with extra rod holders, solar panel and spinnaker kit. I look forward to sharing more stories and my adventures throughout Florida. Also, I will be posting up product reviews on a regular basis so check back regularly.

    Hi Guys, my names Pete and I've been sailing my Chesapeake Light Craft West River 180 with the MKII Sail rig for a few years now. I customized a lot of it so it sails schooner rigged and I gotta say I love. I'm looking forward to some mods this spring for the coming warmer season. I've been interested in sailing kayaks since circa 1997 but have been sailing since 2011.

    petepala1961 Thanks guys. I want to pretty her up a bit before I post pics. I want to pinstripe tape (west marine) along the sides to terminate the colors with a cleaner edge. Doing a little redo on the rudder too. I swear I will never ever - ever - be stranded with rudder failure again. Its not complicated - just proper reinforcements. Thanks again.

    Butch you alright just heard the watertribe event was cancelled due to weather - people in the water

    Butch Several people did go in the water Saturday morning and were unable to self rescue. Fortunately for them, they were prepared to be in the water with the appropriate clothing and wearing PFDs. The Hobie AIs and Tis put on a good showing making it across Tampa Bay and Sarasota Bay without any issues.

    It is just unfortunate that the USCG felt it necessary to terminate the entire race, even though the weather was fine once across Tampa Bay. Hopefully, this will not impact any WaterTribe future events.
