pump 1.JPG

If you are unlucky enough to have rolled over in your kayak like I have, then you will really appreciate this project. The goal was to install a bilge pump that was operated by you feet. This allows you hands to be free for paddling and stabilizing your boat. It’s a well thought out build that would make a nice addition to any sea kayak.

    Now you need a nozzle on the outlet so you can use it as a water cannon too!!

    Isnt a spray skirt supposed to keep water intrusion to a minimum?

      @Andrew

      Spray skirts are mostly used on white water kayaks, not lake kayaks. I rarely used mine because it traps in a lot of heat and makes it really uncomfortable. However, they are great when it rains or is cold!
