Diablo Chupacabra Skeg Project

A couple weeks ago a box arrived from Diablo Paddlesports which contained the long awaited skeg setup and a Fly Deck as well.

My only ding with the Chupacabra is that it doesn't track that well at all and this skeg should even that out quite a bit.  The Diablo kayaks already have a pretty clean front space but the Fly Deck should keep fly line from getting wrapped around the foot rests will be good. 


Yesterday Diablo Paddlesports posted the Skeg Install video which walks you through the process step by step.  Looks like it will be easy to give the Chupacabra the upgrade.



The Skeg and Fly Deck should be available through your local Diablo Paddlesports dealer for purchase and both will fit either the Chupacabra or Adios.  

I am starting to map out a few kayak trips for this year and the Chupacabra is definitely getting wet soon.

Cory Routh...where is Back Bay? Road tripping is usually not a problem if there is fly fishing involved.
