hello yall, ive been looking hard at a few yaks here the last couple weeks.. I currently have a Eddie Gear kayak (my first) and will be upgrading in the next couple months to a pedal drive. the few kayaks on my radar is the old town PDL, Hobie PA14 and of course the Titan.. I am really liking what I have been seeing in the vids about the titan and so far the reviews have been really good. I have not yet been able to demo the PDL or the Titan but hoping by the end of the month I can change that.

All being said I do have a couple questions for some of you titan owners.... How well does the front hatch seal, and does it leak if submerged? , I live on the gulf coast and will be fishing offshore frequently so taking a wave over the front of the boat will be a normal adventure unless its glass that day.

2nd question.. I have seen that the landing gear seems to be the way to transport on the ground if needed.. has anyone seen or heard of using beach wheels for this setup? I know hobie has the scupper hole beach wheel cart and the landing gear with the same wheels but am unsure if they can be used on the titan?? I imagine the scupper holes are not the same dimensions... this is a huge deal to me and could determine my decision on buying because most beach access points will be a good walk through our sugar sandy beaches and those beach wheels make ALL the difference!

Any input would be much appreciated, tight lines!!!!

The front hatch is not water tight and will definitely take in water if submerged. The best solution right now to fix this is to install some seal tape on both the hatch lid and also the raised lip of the hatch on the hull.

The landing gear does have a balloon tire option.

another disadvantage to the weight problem is that in many small lakes in Colorado (like all of them around me in SW CO), because of the Zebra Mussel fears, you are not allowed to put ANY trailer hauled boat into the water, including kayaks. So if you can't hand carry it or get it there with Landing Gear, you cant launch it. lighter is better, so I guess I'll have to wait to see the weight of the shorter versions /

I will carry it in back of my truck, or a trailer, but will launch from I cart I have planned if I ever get one. Weather it's the Titan or something else.
