. So one more question. How strong are the akas so as to hold one passenger? If one person (censored) on the left aka and one on the right are they going to hold the weight? I mean how strong are the aka bases on the kayak to hold so much weight?
Thank you all. You are very helpful.
Your English is terrific, Stam.
One good thing about taking your girlfriend on the boat occasionally - you'll find out if she's as adventurous as you are. If you are a good captain, she will enjoy it. If she likes sailing, but is willing to pack your lunch, drop you off, pick you up somewhere downwind, and then help you load and wash the boat, she is a KEEPER! Set the hook immediately.
Okay, now back to sailing,..
If there are no cracks in the hull or under the Akas, you'll have no trouble supporting 1 person out on the tramps. I would not recommend 2 on the same side because they're not designed for that. Combining a quarterdeck with tramps sounds like a perfect set up for two people, however you won't be able to pack much else with you on the trip. Too much weight. (You MUST still pack safety gear, yes?)
Your biggest concerns will be taking on water through the aft rudder lines and breaking rudder pins. Once you flood the hull with 2 aboard, you won't be able to pump it out and the AI will become very unstable. So please watch for this and stay close to shore.
