By popular demand, these self install kits allow you to convert your packraft to a self bailer! The kit includes the same seating system as we use in our self bailing Alpacka Series–a 3/4 length seat, an inflatable touring footrest, and a sleeve to hold the 3/4 length seat in place. The seat sleeve is attached to 2-inch wide strips of fabric for gluing to the floor of your packraft and which also provide reinforcement for punching the self bailing holes.
Sizing is based on our small (Alpaca), medium (Yak), large (Llama), and extra large (Mule) Alpacka Series models. The Fjord Explorer is in between the large and extra large sizes and can be adapted with either, although the fit is not as good as the standard models.
NOTE – This kit is designed for boaters who are experienced in modifying their packrafts using a quality urethane compatible glue and are willing to spend the time getting the sleeve placement correct before gluing. If you are not comfortable with this process, we recommend purchasing a factory self bailer or waiting until we have capacity to offer a factory self bailer retrofit.
