Now, let's address some frequently asked questions:
The Guppy size will be too big for an 8' kayak. However, we have a model called the Shiner specifically designed for 8' foot kayaks, which will be available on Amazon in the coming weeks.
If you have a Lifetime 90894 Triton 100 kayak, the Barracuda size will be the best fit for you. It is compatible with kayaks where the seat is below the upper rails or top edge of the kayak.
If you have a 12' by 41" wide kayak, the 8' distance between mounts is specifically for the Barracuda Frame. Unfortunately, it is not possible to mount both behind the seat to add front space.
If you have a Perception Joyride 10.0 kayak, the canopy will be just enough to cover one seat. It has "s" hooks on the straps that can be connected to a hole or rope handles on the kayak.
