Can I use a Kayalu product in extreme conditions, heavy seas or whitewater?
Our Kayalite, Kayacam, Kayaball or Kayapod products are constructed using premium grade materials to ensure durability and reliability in harsh environments.

No modifications are required for moderately difficult conditions or activities such as an intentional kayak roll, a sail in heavy winds or the bound of your powerboat over the waves.

If you are planning to use one of these products regularly in extremely turbulent conditions — heavy seas or whitewater for example, we recommend that you replace our elastic bungee shock cord with a length of line that is less flexible and more capable of managing significant force.

A 19" length of 3/16" to 1/4" double braid can be tied with a bowline to our plated steel breech clip and fed through the mast's inner tube as a suitable replacement for the bungee. Knot the bitter end to prevent the line from withdrawing back into the tube.

When the steel clip is secured to your deck and the line is pulled firm, the base will be married to your deck surface. Under tension, the line can be cleated off for a secure hold.

The foam base should compress slightly, keeping the base firmly pressed to the surface of attachment.
