I didn't want to put my new carbon fiber down on the ground
whenever I was between the car and the water, so I bought the
Talic kayak stand - it works on the canoe just fine. You can't flip the
boat over to work on the hull, but the stands are well build and
durable - nice finish and there is no way the nylon straps will scratch
the gel coat. After a couple set up and take downs BOTH of my
stands (they come in pairs and you need two...) developed a wobble.
All four feet don't touch at one time - I am working on a remedy
since it might just need a adjustment. This is a GREAT way to keep
your kayak or canoe out of the dirt between trips. I have a pair of
padded saw horses for major maintenance and service. Just that
Works like a charm all season long (5 seasons now) (2 x 16-17'
kayaks). Use bungees and heavy duty tent stake to secure stands to
ground. Good height. Spare pare in garage ready end/beginning
season to help and make easier task to raise and lower from ceiling
(Use the Harken Lift System-Best).. Highly recommended.
Purchased to make life easier with maintenance on my Eddyline
Journey. Recently replaced perimeter lines and installed a North
Water Underdeck Bag (requires working on the boat upside down) -
made life a lot easier. Will make cleaning/waxing much easier at
well (something to do this evening). Really like how compactly
they fold up and how securely they cradle my yak. A bit pricey but
you typically have to pay for quality.
Excellent - perfect for the task!
Purchased 31" aft,er having homemade cradles for years in an attempt
to avoid what I fellt was to high a price.
The Talic has worked well for me, so along with durability,portability,
total satisfaction,I give this product the highest ratings.

I'm 5'3" and my husband 5'11" tall. We have the Haulavator to get
our kayak on top of an all terrain truck. I was having a hard time
lifting the kayak from the ground to the rack. My husband has had
two lower disc surgeries in the past. I purchased the seahorse in ho
p especially that if we could lift from the waist it would be a bit
better for both of us. The seahorse stand is perfect and did make
getting t he kayak on to the rack so much easier. What a great
idea. I am storing the kayak on the stands and with very high wind
they never fell over. Very sturdy. We highly recommend.
These stands are excellent and very stable for my 2 Diablo
Paddlesports Amigos that I purchased from ACK. Allow me to
customize and clean my kayaks after use as well. They are very
sturdy and maneuverable as well as very portable. Great product.
Beats my home mad stands by a long shot. Will look at getting
another set for the second kayak here sometime soon.
I finally broke down last season and bought the Talic Seahorse stands.
I wanted to keep my Eddyline Fathom sea kayak off the ground while
cleaning it. I was setting it in the hoist in the garage, to clean it but
that didn't work well. These stands are simply perfect! Their height
works perfectly for me. The stands are light, fold and unfold easily,
and wipe down easily before putting them away. As for supporting the
boat, they cradle it great. I can have the kayak upright in the stands,
and easily spin it over while in the stands so that I can work on the
bottom. There are no sharp edges to scratch your boat either. The
other thing that is great about these stands is that the ground doesn't
have to be level. My yard is lumpy and bumpy, and tree roots are
here and there, making for a very unlevel surface, which doesn't
phase the stands at all. They form to the unlevel surface without a
problem and are stable as can be. You get what you pay for, and
these stands are worth every penny.
Sturdy enough to hold my Hobie Oasis (a tandem kayak) and
conveniently easy to setup or put away.
best kayak stand yet
I have used saw horses in the
past to put my kayaks on the
do work on them. Not very
stable. Then I found this
kayak stand and it is the best
yet. Very stable and very
protable and easy to store.
Not the least expensive, but
well worth the investment.
Would highly recommend this
product for storing or working
on your kayak.
I bought the Talic 31" stand set
for both storing and working on
my boat. First, I found it for a
better price elsewhere (ACK
has since adjusted price on
website), so I called for a price
match. Staff was gracious and
accommodating... couldn't be
nicer transaction. Delivery
was speedy, too. The stands
are perfect for both tasks. I
turtled my boat on the stands
in order to apply a keel strip,
and the stands were ultra
stable. The working height
was very comfortable, too.
Great product, and super
I bought the Talic Seahorse
Kayak Stand and I'm glad I
did. It's the perfect height to
do repair work, extremely
stable and looks great when
showing off my kayak. I've
seen others that were too low
for me to work on without
stooping over, I'm 6 feet tall.
Easy to setup and place the
kayak on and they store easily
inside the kayak when not in
