Revolution 16: Anyone use the daggerboard for stability?

7 posts in this topic

I’m 6’3” .. 240.. and I’ve been using the dagger for about a year .. well worth the $.. helps with the side to side tip.. had a outback and revo .. 16 ft is  definitely the most tippy  of them .. after time you get  used to it but the dagger board definitely helps

I've never been in a kayak. I'm a canoe guy for over 5 decades, 16' - 60 lb - Oldtown Camper.  I almost always have a 40# thrust troller mounted to the side.  I've noticed the canoe is definitely more stable when the troller is mounted then when it's not on the canoe.  So, it doesn't take much of a center board to make a craft more stable.

How's it in a rip?

I have the older Adventure 16 and have never used any type of centerboard.   

If it works for you then that's all that matters.

If you haven't tried it out and are curious ....why not check it out?

Good luck with that.
