Tackle box fixing
Rear scupper hole its gone were marvin said on the join
Center Hatch water got in from inside
The scupper hole is the major leak makes you wonder how they test for leaks if they do at all

The way this forum is structured, you can't. Email or PM me the picture you want to use or if it's on the net, give me a link. I'll shrink it if needed (48x48 is the largest that can be used) and post it to the avatar section so you can use it. If it is animated, I can only resize .gif animations so .bmp won't work. If it is a still pic, I can take pretty much any format you want to send but will convert it to .jpg or .gif.
Newt How do you go about making your own and getting it put up thanks

I can only asume that the reason although not warrented behind this lack of quality control is down to the fact that production of these has increased tenfold in the last couple of years, that is no excuse for laying peoples lives on the line.
If life is one big joke, I just dont get it.

Yes the Kayaks made in Newzealand are supposed to be a lot better than those made in the u.s.a.
Why that is I dont know.
Dont know if its correct either.
But you would think that Ocean would demmand high standards from both.
The Kayak market is a very competitive one from what I cn see, so you need quality on your side, and respect for the craft you produce from the buyers and users.
There may be a few factory seconds finding thier way over here, not sujesting thats the case you understand.
I bought a Cobra Navigator a while back, and had pin holes appearing by the week !!
The pin holes became bigger.
I think, but dont know, that these pin holes were filled with wax or what ever, and with using the Yak, it wore out to expose the flaws........not good.
Both my XTs are NZ boats, and although I had trouble with the front hatch fitting, the Yaks themselves are well made and very strong.
I have my doubts about the Prowler 13 and mailed my thoughts to Starvin.
Just my oppinion, but there is too much flex in the cockpit area, alongside the centre consul.
Be carfull how you lower yourselves in to the seat.
This area realy needs strengthening.
The material of the front cup holder is extremely thin, this could do with being made stronger too.
Just my oppinion and observations.
I would realy think twice about mounting systems too.

I'm in the US and have recently purchased an OK Prowler 13. I'm happy to say that I don't get a drop of water in the hull even after paddling in some pretty choppy stuff! I've also received EXCELLENT customer service from them. I'm sorry to hear about all the problems you all are having with your Prowlers and I'll be looking forward to hearing how you're rectifying the problem.
Now... I'm off to go fishing!!!!

The last trip I had about a cupfull of water inside.
I will fill the yak up with water on Monday and see if I can see any leaks.
