I looked at your site and I see what you mean.  Very similar!

I had originally wanted the one in Kraken to be in the TW like yours but Tony the hull designer moved it to under the seat to the lowest point in the hull to make sure it would always be primed.  It will make rigging a bit harder but it should work well.

Over the years it seems like all ideas like center hatches, rigid seating, and now drop in pods start on one boat and get co-opted and improved over each generation of boat.

Jim: A lot of people are using live bait offshore. Iíve built custom bait tanks for years, always dragging a pump. They bang on the hull, catch on kelp and weeds. I wanted a better way to do it. Iím not hip to putting a pump inside the kayak either. If you have a failure it is catastrophic. If you go through a scupper that isnít designed for it you have a priming issue.

I am super excited that we came up with a specially designed bait tank scupper. Itís never been done that Iíve seen. We had to change the JKrate Ė itís the KKrate now. The plumbing is very clean. The intake comes in from the bottom. You donít need tubing all over the sides of the boat.


       Wow...    " It's never been done that I've seen "        I just lost all respect.

All the kayak manufacturers steal from each other. Some more blatant than others. It's like the wild west.  The false advertising is all over the place too.

 The fact that it's used isn't an issue.     What pisses me off is the blatant claim that  Sammons claims it's his idea.   He know's damm well where and when he's seen that implemented.  In fact, it appears to be an exact copy.    Now that's just shameless.  :smt009
     Makes me wonder how much input he actually had in the " design" .

     BTW,,,  Bet you didn't know,,   I invented the internet.   :smt044 :smt044 :smt044
