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
This is my 2nd pair of Talic
Seahorse - primarily used the
first one to wash down and
clean our kayaks on the lawn
before storing the kayaks on
permanent wall storage
brackets - they were
outstanding for the purpose.
Moved to a new house and do
not have wall storage brackets
up yet so I ordered a 2nd pair
of Talic's and using both of
them to hold/store our kayaks.
ACK sells these at a great
price and their service is
Very effective stand for all my
kayaks and rowing shells. It will
travel better than my other boat
slings as it folds up into a much
Good way to work on your kayak
and very portable, effective way
to temporarily store your ride.
These stands seem pricey, but you get what you
pay for. Although not clear from the online
description, you get a pair (two) stands for the
price. They are light, high quality stands that
fold up easily for storing. I use them to clean
my kayaks in the little front yard of my
townhouse. A perfect solution and well worth
Great product. I needed a stand for my Ocean Kayak
SOT for rigging the kayak and this works perfect. I
wouldn't use it for long term storage as the stands
have to be out at the narrow ends of a SOT, but a few
days was fine. Product seems to be designed more
specifically for sea kayaks. That said, it works great
for me and keeps the kayak from moving while drilling
and screwing pad eyes, etc. They are very light and
compact and will be great for trips. MSRP is high in my
opinion, but ACK had the best price as usual and made
it better with a promo code and free ship. ACK is
always my "go to" for paddling needs.
The Kayak stand is quick to
collapse and set up and great for
a beach stand for my kayak.
This is a great product.
Previous to my purchase of it I
made a Kayak stand from PVC
pipe and some webbing
material. It worked fine but
was so bulky to store. The
Talic Seahorse kayak stand
works very well, is easily
portable, and takes up virtually
no space to store. Highly
