Fishing for northern on the banks of Crane Creek in Eastern Iowa, Crane Creek Kayaks was born. Owner, Brian Mauer, wished to return to the Boundary waters on his own in his beloved kayaks. Unfortunately, his kayak wasn't stable enough to handle such an extended trip. Not finding a kayak that met his needs, Brian, made a solution, the Styrigger. The Styrigger is an innovative stabilizing system for canoes or kayaks that revolutionize kayaking with its adjustable outrigger and seating system to conveniently transition between positions and functionalities while in use.
