Bulkhead and Hatches

These features are located at the extreme end of the boat, the bulkhead stands a vertical wall to seal off the apartment, while the hatch opens up to store the gear. Both of these also help to provide buoyancy to the kayak.

Deck Rigging

Toggles, deck lines and bungles all combined provide safety for paddling. A compass, navigational charts, spare paddle, coupled with other items are made available on deck.
