Description

The new Gen 2 YakGear outriggers help you feel safe and secure in your kayak or canoe by utilizing the stabilizing effects of the re-designed floats. Stability while paddling is a problem for some paddlers. Whether you are standing to sight cast at fish, traversing through choppy waters, or paddling with the kids, the YakGear Outrigger system provides a more comfortable paddling experience. The 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 (2) outriggers, one for the port and one for the starboard side of your watercraft. 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 outriggers are attached by using a RAILBLAZA StarPort base mounted to the boat. The outriggers can be removed at any time making your watercraft easy to transport, leaving only the RAILBLAZA base. The adjustable outrigger arms can be raised independently if you are getting close to a dock or other obstruction. Installation placement of the outriggers may be mounted in the front or rear of your watercraft. The included floats have pre-installed threading (1/4 x 20 brass insert) to mount a RAILBLAZA StarPort HD (included) directly to the float, which is used to connect to the outrigger arms; and a RAILBLAZA MiniPort base (not included) on your float, giving you the ability to mount another RAILBLAZA StarPort accessory of your choice (amazing camera angles using the Railblaza Camera Kit or Camera Adaptor). These outriggers can attach to a canoe by using a piece of Hardie board (not included). These outriggers are best for total weights under 350 pounds. As always, this complete kit comes with all stainless steel installation hardware, installation instructions, and rigging tips from YakGear.

In the pictures, you will also see how to install a thwart on your canoe to add YakGear Outriggers. You can use Hardie board or any hardwood. Screws for installation to the top of a gunnel will need to be purchased at a local hardware store. Pipe foam was added on the front and back to hang your favorite lures. You can also use the thwart as a console to add a Railblaza DrinkHold, StowPod, additional rod holders or a Fish Finder Mount.

    New Generation 2 outriggers are the bomb. Out on Lake Michigan with rollers, they added the stability I needed to be confident trolling for Salmon. Great adjustability, camera mounts, and durability are all a plus. Highly recommend this if you travel in rough waters. Best W Lutman

    WOW, WHAT A DIFFERENCE!:
    I just placed a set of the YakGear Gen 2’S on my Ascend H10 (AKA Lil Hooker). I took Lil Hooker out yesterday, May 11, 2020, to Foster Lake Oregon ( Big reservoir) & I admit, my kayak never felt more steady. With the wind & “Rollers” I experienced at times, I would have quit fishing for the day (before noon), however, with the stabalizers, I felt comfortable & I was able to stay out & fish, even though at times the wind was pushing me just under 2 mph, per the Garmin GPS fish finder.

    STANDING TEST:
    I also stood up in Lil Hooker leaving shore just to try it. I paddled like a paddle board about 30 feet from shore ( enough of a try). Again, without the Gen 2’s this wouldn’t have been an option.

    SETUP:
    I had to place the Gen 2’s in an angle behind my seat, otherwise I would be hitting them with the paddle. Even though I don’t have the full extension of the Gen 2’s for the optimal effectiveness, I was still extremely impressed with this product!

    QUALITY:
    These Gen 2’s feel like quality! The solid light weight “Pontoons” feel strong! The outriggers “Arms,” again light weight, but feel very durable. The starport Railblaza connector fastened nicely & the lock system is easy to use & works great. The Gen 2’s altogether with Railblaza make a very easy to use system that is very simple & quick to set up & take down.

    RECOMMENDATION:
    I recommend these products (YakGear & Railblaza) to anyone who wants to concentrate on relaxing or fishing without the fight of keeping completely balanced. Rember, while your busy reeling in that fish a boat wake or roller at some point will catch you off guard!

    YakGear & Railblaza, thank you!

    These are fantastic. I put them on a 10ft flat bottom boat that was extremely unstable and now you can stand in it with ease. Very light, very well made, and easy to adjust.
