Sit-On-Top Basic Package

Our SOT version shares most of the closed hull system features while adding integrated accessory storage and optional integrated hydration features. In lieu of a rubber hull adapter ring, our SOT system features a durable plastic hull adapter with a hinged and latched top providing access to a large internal water resistant storage bag.  Our hull adapter is designed to replace OEM 5” angled day hatches, which are common on SOT kayaks. The 4.5” hinged top opening and storage bag are large enough to store virtually all common mounted system accessories. SOT kayaks are essentially sealed hulls, and pumps are rarely used. Therefore we deleted the pump holder and related features. Our Octopus SOT system offers unique and exciting safety and convenience features. All components are safely accessible while underway! Installation is easy. Simply remove the OEM angled day-hatch and porous bag. Then, using the provided hardware (screws etc.), install the adapter fitting using the same opening and screw holes. Simple and quick…screw driver and pliers job. You are ready to go! The basic kit includes everything needed to enjoy the following Octopus system features:

  • Hinged Octopus Hatch with Adapter Housing
  • Tethered Hatch Cover with Easy-Grasp Lug Handle
  • Large Water Resistant In-Hull Accessory Storage Compartment Bag with room for the accessories, Hydration Reservoir, and More

Plus: detailed instructions, hardware, and user tips.

Note: User furnishes their own favored accessories such as compass, VHF radio, GPS, commuter cups, large capacity sports reservoir, etc.
