    Old Town Produces awesome Kayaks for a great price. I have a Old Town fishing kayak that I love and take it on the water to do some bass fishing almost every week. Its one of the better priced kayaks out there!

    Hi, As our condo recently placed kayak racks on the property, we just purchased our first kayak, a Vapor Deluxe 10- Angler. Our kayak will sit on the bottom rack. We are trying to find a cover for the cockpit (so small animals, snakes, etc. don't make a home in our kayak). Thus far we haven't been able to find one...and thus the kayak sits in the garage......Any recommendations? Hoping to be able to use our kayak soon.....:-)
