"This is good Jason, you're getting some great experience dealing with wind, currents and waves! ;) The difference between your two kayaks is that in your (comfy) sit on top .. you ride on top. This means that you're effectively an occupant…"

How do you store your water?

As I prepare and research for multi-day trips in the glades, I am confused over what the best method for storing water is. I'm using a sea kayak, so unlike a canoe I do have somewhat steep restrictions regarding the size of my water containers. I also know that protecting your water from raccoons is important. I'd be interested in hearing how some of the more experienced kayakers handle their water and food storage.See More
