I’m going to put a camper shell on mine and eventually this will be me

Is that a Tacoma or a Tundra? Box might not be quite long enough for a cot unless you’re about 5 feet tall lol

Most trucks don’t have long boxes like that anymore. They are usually 5.5 feet on a full size truck with a crew cab.

Ya - but mine is only an extended cab with the 6.5' box behind it. I can put 8' long lumber or aluminum cross-wise in the bed and close the hatch. Rear 'seat' was removed to turn the back part of the cab into cargo room...'suicide doors'.

Big shout out to @BigBiscuit for hooking me up with this Sportspal

Owner before BB painted over the factory red, luckily they didn’t prep well so I think I’ll be able to save most of the factory finish as per BB’s suggestion.

DB277-AD1-AFA5-45-ED-8-C38-9-BC2-A74-E53
5 minutes with a plastic razor blade

604-FF4-EF-78-C0-4-BA2-9-AC1-F10-E4-CF4-
followed by 10 minutes with the pressure washer.. the paint on the bottom is sticking better than I hoped.

 

I have big plans for this girl. The 12 is want I wanted when I lucked into my 14, she’ll be going to my neighbor and his son.

I agree… I’ve been researching and I believe the Sportspal is older than me.


The 14 foot Radisson is light, the Sportspal is featherweight. It has a couple of seams that I want to reseal (although they probably don’t leak) and obviously some paint work. The 14 footer has 2 thwarts which I use to lift onto the roof of my Jeep. I’m going to make a seat for the Sportspal that incorporates a grab handle for easier cartopping. My current outrigger setup will swap over but I probably won’t use it much.

It was nice meeting you Jason and we're just glad that someone will be putting that old girl back into service. It just doesn't feel right for them to sit unused year after year. I know you'll get lots more years of service from her.

Those Sportspal canoes are wider than most, I find them more stable than than other canoes. Those foam sponsons on the sides add to that stability!!

So I’m pretty late in updating the forums on this but pretty much as soon as I got to TX, I purchased a Hobie Mirage Outback. The store I bought it from in Austin was kind enough to install the anchor trolley you see at a discounted price. They are called No Bad Days Kayak. I can’t recommend them enough. It’s the best customer service I’ve received for any purchase. 
 

Very satisfied with the purchase. The kayak is fast, stable, and maneuverable.

I see them a lot at the lakes I fish and the owners rave about them, enjoy.
