We've all experienced the...

We've all experienced the "bumps & grinds" – when the water level is a bit on the low side you bump your way over each rock in the river and every time you do, those rocks grind away at the bottom of your kayak. A guy named Phil Warren has come up with an ingenious solution. The most vulnerable point of impact is right beneath your seat where the most amount of weight is concentrated and that's exactly where his "Slim Skiddys" are installed. As the name suggests, these high-density polyethylene runners help you skid instead of scrape your way over river rocks and they ward off abrasion damage.

Slim Skiddys are designed to fit snugly in the grooves molded into the bottom of your yak and are held in place by an upright rod which runs up through the scupper hole right beneath the seat. The Skiddys take the beating from the "bumps and grinds" instead of the bottom of your boat. The included instructions make installation a snap! It requires only a Phillips screwdriver, takes less than 5 minutes even for the mechanically inept, and requires no drilling or adhesives. Slim Skiddys come with a guarantee of satisfaction and are designed to fit Wilderness Systems Tarpon kayaks of all lengths and Perception Sport Pescador 10 and 12 footers. At only $19.95 they are affordable damage protection.

I installed Slim Skiddys on my Tarpon and did a run down Big Wills Creek the next day. They performed as advertised. For further information go to E-bay and key in "slim skiddys" or contact Phil Warren: philwarren278@gmail.com, or 256-792-9022.
