Post subject:  New Accessory - Wind and Spray Dodger

Just saw a post about hunting on a kayak in the kayakfishingstuff.com "Cajun Country" forum. So I posted that we have a new product that can offer hunters some coverage. It is originally designed as a spray and wind Dodger. This will be available by January I think. They are in production.

<<How about hunting on a Hobie Mirage? We have a new dodger available soon. Since the boat is pedaled, you can have the dodger in place at all times. We are working on license issues for the camo print, so that one will be a little longer. Ready to fit on the Outback, Adventure and Sport (grey and yellow available by January I think). Retail priced at about $100.00 The camo will likely be a little more due to the license fees for this camo print from Mossy Oak.

Better still, this will keep you warmer and dryer while pedaling!>>


The Dodger is simple to install and requires moments to attach when you want to use it. Folds down forward if you want to access the cockpit or make pedal adjustments.


We are talking truely stealth mode here. People will not be able to figure out how you make your boat move!

Intriguing addition to the outback! Any possibility for a full fairing that shields the body and face, too? On a blustery day when the north winds are howling, it is the spray from diagonal chop that hits the bow of the boat that soaks the arms and face that I'd like to be able to stop. Looking at this photo, only the legs will stay dry. The upper body, arms, and face are still subject to cold spray. Usually, when northerly winds breeze through, I limit kayaking to protected areas to avoid big chops. Having a full fairing would open open up the options of routes. Just a thought. I do like this new option :D

You can see by some of the pictures that the Dodger comes up high and wide before tapering back down for a tighter fit at the body. That stops most wind and spray. A good spray top can help the upper body. The face? We used to wear a face shield when sailing the Trifoiler due to the amount of spray. Not sure you would feel like wearing one, but Garth had a helmet with spray shield that was pretty cool. Kinda like wearing a full face shield on a motorcycle.

Here's a model that's sure to protect you from the cold spray in the face!


Or, you could take up shore fishing. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I heard there's a guy in Oceanside, Ca. (about three blocks down the street from the Hobie factory) that'll mount one of these on the bow or tank well of your Outback or Adventure. Smaller caliber available for your Sport, of course.


Look out Ducks!!
