Frequently Asked Questions

What is the tube diameter? Is it better in waves than the Fast Track 385?

The 420x tube diameter is 11 1/2". That's 2 inches more than the 385 Fast Track. You'll probably find that the Explorer kayaks are better in waves because they are deisgned to be better in whitewater that the Fast Tracks, which are designed to be better flat water kayaks.

can an extra seat be bought and added to use with 6 year old child?

Definitely! The seats are very comfortable but pricey for a third seat. We opted for a cheap coleman stadium seat and just used some carabiners to secure it to the boat. Worked great for Grandma or kids riding along.
