Just got two pics of my  kayak showing me how they installed my umbrella.  One has a workbench in the background with a horizontal pipe that looks like it is part of my kayak .... NOPE.

That looks awesome!

Can't wait for your review! As a JK big rig owner, I'm really interested in how you like your c135.

Well time for an owner report.  I just love this kayak.  It is everything as advertised.  Definitely stable and I the seat is quite comfortable.  The only thing I would not do again is get the umbrella as that has turned into a sail on windy days.  It fits quite nicely into my Avalanche with the back seat folded down!  And I can unload and load it myself at the age of 68.


I originally thought I would not use it for fishing, but that has changed.  So now I am thinking through what I still need.  Next up will be pole anchors...something I am sure you do not use that often.

Yeah that umbrella looks like something bad is about to happen.

Besides it becoming a sail it looks like it could possibly cause righting issues if your yak was to flip on you. Don't need that extra drag when you are trying to self rescue.
