Towing Equipment & How to

The following links have useful information about towing –

Kayarchy Equipment has a bit on tow ropes and

Kayarchy Towing has the “how to” information about towing.

For further information including making a towline and tow point –

UKSK Towlines

Note that a central tow point is shown. This works well on a kayak without a rudder or a sticking up stern but if the tow point is to one side it is much easier to release and to keep the towline clear of the rudder. You could put an attachment point on both sides making it easier when a dual tow is used and it would not matter which side the towed kayak was on.
