Keep one of these in your kayak when going sailing, They are cheap insurance! Most sailors get a decade or better from our inflatable amas but I still carry one on all outings. It takes 5 minutes to change and can really save some down time. Please Note : Aluminum Aka tube and saddle not included.Ships free to US.

BSD/BOSS ama on Klepper
Received my BOSS amas about 3 weeks ago, and made crossmount tube and akas for my Klepper/Long Haul hybrid Aerius 2 from 1-1/2 and 1-/4" OD 6061-T6 temper aluminum tube, and saddles from fibreglass-reinforced rubber. I included features not available in standard BSD/BOSS outrigger for 1) downwind sailing and 2) adjustable aka/ama height for light winding sailing. Spent 4 days sailing on Lake Michigan and Green Bay last weekend with these. The amas work very well and I am very pleased with them. May purchase another set for excellent boat stability with Klepper S4 rig with 70 square feet of sail. Two sets of BSD/BOSS amas should give me safety on big waters with gusts up to over 35 mph. Many thanks to Jon Sairs, David Velverde, and Mark Balogh for this ama design and setting up steady manufacturer somewhere of this excellent ama. I will recommend them to anyone who asks! Best regards, Chris Wilkes
