So I’m looking for some help understanding Aire Force IK’s. I’m thinking about modifying one to be able to do light self support trips. I have 2 Lynx 1’s that I use for self support most of the time and for friends/ partner paddling. I’m looking for a more high performance IK and I have my eye on a Force. I come from a hardshell background and was a solid 4-5 paddler. But bad shoulders and not being able to get out like I use to have found me in IK’s. While I’m a big fan of Aire I’m also looking at a Sotar 11’ IK as an alternative to a Force. My idea is to use a Force and ditch the float bags and replace them with watershed stowfloats bow and stern. Adding a regular kayak back band and foot pegs to round it out. The goal is to have a high performance IK with some ultra light gear capacity for over night class 4-5 runs. Having never even seen a force in person I’m just not sure if this is an idea that would even work. I spoke to someone at Air about the idea and he basically OKed the idea but also possibly didn’t quite get exactly what I was trying to do. Anyone out there with a Force and familiar with the Watershed Stowfloats? With a hung back band would the stowfloats fit well in the bow and stern? And thoughts on the idea mountain buzz brain trust?
