Default It's official

This fat guy has a yak. I bought an xfactor and so far I am happy with it. I really need a better seat though. Probably going to go with a surf to summit. I'm a site to see on that thing for sure!

Off the wall question though. I noticed today that the bottom has a small dent in it. I have it sitting on two coolers in my garage and I guess the handle on one of the cooler put a small dent right on a rib. Is this something to worry about, can it be fixed?

If the sun ever comes out, put your yak outside upside down and the heat from the sun will pop it out most likely.

Shouldn't really be a big deal. If you don't want to leave it in the sun for a while you can slowly pour hot water on it and push it out from the inside. I have done this to a few yaks and never had a problem. Probably want to come up with a storage system for it since they can deform over time if they aren't stored correctly.

Needs to be stored on cushoined supports usually. Support your kayak properly and it will support you for a long time. Pool noodles were my best friend for storage. Keep it indoors out of the sun if possible.

Default Dealer?

I'm looking at the X Factor online, but can't find a dealer. Would you mind letting me know where you found yours?
