On another thread BMB 2.0 suggested it might be possible to put an outrigger on a Stealth ProFisha like those on the Huki.com racing canoe/kayak's.

I've been considering an AI primarily for the stability I'd get by using one Ama, but I'm not really thrilled with all the other stuff that I have to pay for and carry by going that route.  My ideal kayak is lightweight fiberglass or composite, SOT, no pedals, with a single Ama/outrigger.  Looking for ease of transport, speed and stability for open ocean waters.  Anyone out there in the industry who might know how to make this happen?

I was at CCK the other day and saw a SIK that weighed in at ~30#.  It was in vertical position...I put my hand inside and pushed up a little, and it lifted straight up with no effort.  Lightweight is good.   :smt001

Google search "OC1" They are huge in the rest of the world just not so much in California. I'm sure We could do a Yakattack rail with a FF and rod holder on one. look up the Epic V6 too. PS like Vwool suggested, I can pick up a Caribbean 14 and carry it over my head, they are light weight and more importantly, balanced.

The OC1 and Epic V6 look really interesting, but neither one seem to have fishing in mind at all.  Wonder if an ama from one of these OC manufacturers could be fitted to a Caribbean 14.  I saw the Caribbean at Clavey, seems to be an improvement on weight, but no ama.

Thanks for all the Google search terms, I never knew the outrigger canoe existed in this modern day context.

They defiantly don't have fishing in mind, but if your a good enough paddler I think you can fish off anything. I've been kicking around the idea of a touring kayak to get me to distant water to flyfish. That's still kayak fishing right?
If you get a fiberglass kayak I'm sure the AMA or iakos mounts could be glassed in. Huki is down in SoCal, so is Valhalla surf skis.

He's built a mini oc1 for his kids. About half way down he talks about the mounts and has pics of them.

Stability.  That's why many use the AI at HMB.

The Eddylines are already stable I wouldn't worry about adding an ama.

Why a touring kayak instead of the Stealth? Its nearly as fast and light, and dialed for fishing.

The only good reason to put an outrigger on a Stealth would be to mount a barbecue

They're way more stable than they look

yeah, I have to admit that the one I paddled briefly at GS8 was more stable than I expected.

I've always wondered why we don't see any single outrigger canoes rigged for fishing, since I see them OTW out of the harbor all the time.

I thought the same thing.  Some of them could be a 6-pack "charter"

One of my coworkers races OCs and I would've bought one but the 575 hit my radar screen

I was already talking w a local kayak designer/racer about a long sleek glass sot, Stealth saved us the trouble
