- Comes with 2 outriggers, meaning one for each side of the boat
- Outriggers provide added stability to any vessel
- Adjustable outrigger arms are 30″ long and connect to the boat with a RAILBLAZA StarPort HD (included)
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. 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.
- Optimal for total weights under 350lbs
- Available to add to canoe by mounting bases to Hardie board (not included)
- Installation instructions and hardware included for kayak mounting
- Mounting for a canoe may need additional hardware found at your local hardware store (see pictures)
- Canoe/kayak not included
I reached out to TH Marine for a product that was out-of-stock everywhere and their friendly staff helped me track down the availability by contacting the manufacturer directly and provided me with an accurate ETA. I placed my order with confidence and just received my product which was packaged nicely. Highly recommend these guys, will be back for more!
I bought these as a replacement for another, cheaper, inflatable outrigger brand, as I wanted something with less risk, in case the inflatable ones were ever to give, I’d hate to be stranded in the middle of a 40ft deep lake. So far so good, easy install, feel really sturdy and most importantly it’s given me the confidence to go out kayaking on the lake without my husband. I’m not the best long distance swimmer and these really make kayaking safe and fun! Thank you for making this product, really want to order another one for our other kayak but I see it’s out of stock. Any way to make the outriggers bigger and perhaps in a variety of colors to match a variety of kayaks? That would be amazing. Thank you!
Amazing!! Better than expected and easy installation!! Love every part of these outriggers! The stabilization improved immensely and i felt confident in the water. Can't wait to get a camera mounted!!! Thank you so much T-H Marine. Shipping was fast and customer service was genuinely kind and I felt they cared about being transparent about order and shipping details. Honest group of staff I'd say!!
