Does the kayak come with paddles? No - you must buy paddles separately. Is the kayak pre-drilled for a rudder system? Yes, there are 6 screws in place in the stern. 4 in the very back (facing out), 2 on top with a debossed plastic area for a mount. I would assume it's specific to an Old Towne rudder system, however. I know they have it for this kayak. If you need a picture, I can provide, but I didn't see an option (on phone) to post. Cheers! How much does the kayak weigh? Around 75 lbs. How much weight can this kayak hold? Max Load Range 425-475 lbs according to the factory specs.
