Feel safe and secure in the kayak due to the stabilizing effects of the YakGear Outriggers. Stability while paddling is a problem for paddlers of all skill levels. Whether you are sight casting in choppy water or paddling safely with the children, YakGear Outriggers provide an easy to install safety net for everything from rocking back and forth to toppling into the water. This set comes with a pair of outriggers, meaning one for each side of the boat. The adjustable outrigger arms are 30 inches long and will provide a float base roughly 22 inches from the port and starboard side of the boat.  The boat side of these 30-inch arms is fitted into a RAILBLAZA StarPort mounted to the boat. During transportation, the Outriggers can be removed, leaving only the RAILBLAZA base.  Installation placement of the outriggers is recommended in the front.  This is due to a tendency to bump shafts in the back with paddles or fishing poles. Frontal mounting also allows the outriggers to hover above the water while paddling because of the weight balance being primarily in the back of the boat.  This outrigger uses standard size orange floats.  Standard floats are best for total weights under 350 pounds and offer an additional 60 pounds of buoyancy. As always, this complete kit comes with all stainless steel installation hardware, installation instructions, and rigging tips from YakGear. Waterproof silicone recommended, but not included.

  1. I’m new to the kayak scene but these OUTRIGGERS help me feel stable ans secure out on the water. I can even stand up in my yak with no issues. Great buy!

  2. These work great for my Lifetime Tamarack. The outriggers came with all the the instructions, but I wanted to make sure i installed it in the correct place for my kayak. I called the phone number and the guy on the phone knew all about my kayak. He told me where to install it, how to install it, and why its best to install it there. Thanks Yak Gear!

    I love fishing out of my kayak, but was never able to stand up for fly fishing. I saw someone with these and asked him how he liked them and he raved. I ordered a set and when I went to install them was having questions about how to and where to locate them. I called up and talked to someone and he spent 20 minutes going over everything. No voice mail, just a real person I could talk too. Great job Yak Gear….

    My wife gave me a set of these for Christmas. I like going out with my two boys on our canoe. We have tipped over twice and did not want that happening again. The Yak Gear outriggers make all the difference. We were really stable and now all three of us can stand and fish together. I like to fly fish and being able to stand up rather than casting sideways has made a big difference. I can see the fish I am casting to

    I’m a big man 300 lbs. I prefer to use this so I won’t tip over in water. It’s hard for a big guy to swim and tip his canoe/kayak back over. Save a headache and buy this!! Sure worked for me…

    While this product doesn’t turn my canoe into a bass boat casting deck, it does make stand up casting a reality.
    It also appears that yak gear has preset the angle that the floats need to ride in the water just about right. I run them front attitude up with two paddlers and simply reverse for one paddler.
    Yak gear also provided good advice prior to my purchase on how to best attach to my 40 year old Delcraft aluminum canoe.
    Delivery exceeded expectations as well by arriving sooner than estimated.

    I added these to my 2017 Hobie Outback. They are fantastic! Today I had them in the down position all day and they worked perfectly. They cut through the water nicely and definitely made me feel safer out on the water! I would recommend them to anyone interested in kayak fishing as they allow you to concentrate on fishing rather than stability. Excellent product, good price, fast shipment, and easy install.

    These outriggers are outstanding! They glide through the water without difficulty, and they don’t interfere with steering or pedaling my Hobie Outback. They are better priced than most and assembly is easy. I highly recommend these to anyone seeking stability, safety, and confidence on the water!

    My husband loves his gift. It makes it a lot easier to pull the big one in without tipping the kayak he told me.

    I really like the product, but I ordered yellow and I received orange. 🙁
