I have researched everything related to this topic and have found a few hits, but no good solutions.

My goal is to add either adventure island amas/akas or aftermarket amas/akas to my oasis so that I have trampolines.

Issue is getting the adventure island amas/akas set up from the dealer is probably going to be around $1200-1500. I’m still waiting on my dealer to give me the quote with shipping.

Second option was to order the large Finn kayak outriggers, but I spoke to the manufacturer and he said he’s too busy to make them right now. Also, Finn kayaks is out of Australia so shipping is a pain for both parties.

It seems like the only good option is to fork over all the money for hobie adventure island parts. I also was thinking about getting two sidekick Ama kits and running a bar laterally from aka to aka, then I could possibly have a small haka or trampoline? I would think hobie could corner the market because I haven’t seen many aftermarket Ama/outrigger kits for kayaks that are similar to the AI or TI.

Anyone have the AI parts I am looking for or any better ideas?

Please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it!

Similar project - I'm adding an ama and akas from my 2012 AI to a 2015 Oasis. Since the Oasis is wider, I need longer crossbars than the ones that came with the AI, which are 25.25" or so. Sounds like the TI rear # 79530201 are 28", which should be just wide enough.

And if curious, I'm planning to use a sleeve (1.5" sch 40 aluminum pipe) as removable 'stilts' between the akas and ama to account for the difference in deck height. If you were buying all parts new I suspect the 2015 akas would work without this hack, being made for a taller boat.
