Glide Track Foot Brace System

 Contoured foot brace system designed to fit your foot comfortably. With an intuitive easy-to-reach adjustment system and position indicators it is easy to get the foot braces set to the same comfortable length on both sides. 

Click Seal Hatch

This easy to open cam lock hatch is designed to lock securely with one simple click. Once it’s locked the durable inner rubber gasket provides an amazing seal which will help keep your gear safe, secure and dry. Note, it’s always recommended using a dry bag for hatch storage. The Click Seal Hatch is water resistant but not 100% waterproof.

The full hull outline at the waterline provides the paddler with greater stability for a given width.

Optional Rudder System

 Old Town’s rudder is a high strength aluminum alloy rudder that is easily installed and very durable. Rudders are great for helping guide the kayak in high winds or strong currents. In the retracted position the Old Town rudder system has a compact and low profile.

YOUR OLD TOWN ADVENTURES

Boy Saves Deer During Kayak Trip on the Tobique River
boydeer1It was as happy an ending as the beloved Walt Disney story of Bambi when an 11 year old boy rescued a newborn deer trapped in mud along a river in northern New Brunswick, Canada. Benjamin Thibodeau was on a camping trip in Riley Brook earlier this summer when he spotted a small animal sticking out of the water along the Tobique River. From his Old Town kayak, he could see a little head, ears and some white sots. He thought it might be a baby deer. The boy called to his father; who was on shore, and quickly paddled over to the animal. When he reached the banks of the river; he saw the deer was up to his belly in mud, its four spindly legs buried deep along the bank. With no leverage to free itself, it couldn't move. Wasting very little time Benjamin pulled the deer out of the mud and then with the help of his father moved it to safety. Happily, the next morning both of them woke up to the sight of the deer standing outside the door of their tent with its mother and sibling.
