Richard, I don't know that I can answer your question but I just got to thinking: "What would be the chances of adapting a kick-up system from another boat such as a Hobie cat 14? Hobie has been making those things for so long that there have to be oodles of them laying around boat yards in enough of a state of disrepair that parts should be available. .....I'm thinking anyway.
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

Are you looking for something like this? http://www.duckworksbbs.com/hardware/cl ... /index.htm

Or more like this? http://www.oneoceankayaks.com/Wshophtm/Shop26.htm If you go to this link (he is a really nice guy) you will see my 'yak in the cutsomer pics link. http://home.comcast.net/%7Ejwentz4/kayak.htm I haven't updated that site in years, sorry. I thought it was lost with all of the recent buyouts of service providers. ;)
