Assembly / Inflating Instructions The illustration below shows the general assembly of the kayak, with optional thigh straps (sold separately).. Your kayak comes from the factory pre-assembled. The only assembly you should need to do is attach the adjustable seat. The StraitEdge Kayak has a rigid frame in the bow and stern that enhances its performance. Assembly Instructions 1. Insert aluminum Bow rib and the Stern rib into the webbing slots on the StraitedgE air bags and webbing slots on the kayak floor, at the bow and stern.. Aluminum Rib Webbing Slot (on Air bag) Air bag Air bag compression strap Webbing Slot (on kayak floor) air bag buckle 2. Attach air bags to the outer cover by tightening the “air bag compression straps” and buckling the “air bag buckle”. Do this while the air bag is deflated. These are preset at the factory and may not require any adjustment. 3. Attach adjustable seat to the StraitedgE side tubes by fastening buckles. To begin inflating your kayak, you will need a Bellows Foot Pump (FAQ) or a Double Action Hand Pump (FAQ) and your Valve Adaptor (FAQ). The Valve Adaptor can be located in the seat pocket with the repair kit. Never use compressors, CO2 or compressed air as they may damage you kayak.
