[Category : - Camping and Outdoors - Fishing and hunting- Boating]
[Viewed 85 times]

A canoe outrigger with built-in, covered, storage capacity. Unlike a typical pontoon type outrigger, this device is a miniature canoe form that has an open interior. The top of the outrigger has three doors allowing for storage and access within the form that holds many supplies, such as camping and fishing gear, food, water and other items. The outrigger is connected to a canoe, or other small boat, by a pair of telescoping arms. Each arm has clamps that secure the arms the gunwales of the vessel. The other end of each arm is bolted into position on the outrigger. In this way, the outrigger is securely attached for use.
The outrigger sabilizes while freeing up space in the watercraft. Supplies stored in the outrigger also acts as a counter balence futher stabilizing craft. the telescoping arms alows the outrigger to move extend out for futher stability or closer to the vessel when tight spots or obsticles are in the way, or just need to grab some gear while your in the vessel.
The sefety this outrigger adds keeps the vessel from completely sinking for any reason and provides life saving floatation due to the water tight seals of the three compartments. You can see this outrigger in action on youtube, search "sidepaw canoe outrigger on river".
