"Joe, no doubt you will have a good day on Sunday, Birthdays i like to forget them i now never know when it,s my last. Yes the problem i found with the "old" Triak was the weight, (thats why i took the sail off and put on a Kayaksailor…"
"Joe, did you see that i have been able to get Triak to put the rigging details on their web site for the Triaks that we have, although mine is now in a boat house on the shore of Lake Ontario, a two day drive away. As i still have the sails my…"
"No-- nothing from Triak. I don't think they have any old rigging diagrams. Mine is mostly rigged. I untied one sheet for transport, and am having trouble with it. I will make it my Columbus Day project to get the boat off its rack and work on…"
"John-- is there a resource to see how to rig the sail? I know you switched it out for another sail, but maybe you have the original documentation?
I think I untied something during transport and cannot now get the sail to go up and be stable…"
"Thanks for your input and personal experience with the paddles-- I tend to think you're right about individual preferences. The cheap one I have probably does 95% of what a fancy cf paddle does.
Carts-- I've seen one cart with…"
"I think my super long arms are going to force me to just find what works for me through trial and error. My first trip out had me thinking that a high angle works best for me.
I wish I were somewhere where Kayaking were more popular…"
"Good info, thanks, John. I actually managed to haul the triak by hand down (and back up!) our sizable hill by the water. I think a larger cart made with 26" bicycle wheels (I'm a bike mechanic) might help it roll better.
"Just headed out for a paddle-only shakedown. Tried and failed to build a cart, and wound up running out to a sporting goods place and back in time for high tide.
I hauled the thing all the way down from my doorstep to the beach.…"
"Thanks, Greg-- one of the videos I've found had someone doing a very high angle stroke on it, which gave me the impression that I may need something rather specialized to get the best performance.
For now, I think I will simply get something…"
"New Triak owner here. Bought used-- mid '90's model with the wishbone type mast stepped on the deck. Has the hydrofoils. Yellow. I picked it up in Jersey and brought it back to our place near the Long Island Sound…"
"Hi John, I've just picked up an older model Triak. (similar to yours, but yellow and with, I think, the older decals on the wing.) I'm lucky enough to live 1600' from Long Island Sound, so wheeling it right to the beach is…"
I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(firstname.lastname@example.org) for the full details.
Joe, no doubt you will have a good day on Sunday, Birthdays i like to forget them i now never know when it,s my last. Yes the problem i found with the "old" Triak was the weight, (thats why i took the sail off and put on a Kayaksailor sail) and when you lift it at one end it tries to turn over, this is not only a Triak problem, anything with a weight on top will do the same. So the Kayaksailor sail is put on at the lake side which is what Triak do now with there new boat which i should try and aquire for next year. Now the Triak is in Toronto they might want the original sail on Which is one reason for chasing Triak to have the rigging instructions made available for the old boat. If you are not sure how to see the instructions go onto the Triak web site and at the botton in small print is the Triak blog, click on it and you will see all the 10 pages of instructions.
Joe, did you see that i have been able to get Triak to put the rigging details on their web site for the Triaks that we have, although mine is now in a boat house on the shore of Lake Ontario, a two day drive away. As i still have the sails my son in law will be able to put them on.
