Default Hydration

Some people have complained about lack of hydration options for the Skua vs Dorado.
For Luna hydration means how many cold beer/ale bottles can he store in his Dorado fishbox but for many of us that means drinking water storage.
Below are photos of how I mounted an insulated camelbak in my surfski ( Being a Yankee in Florida , I drink a lot of water when I paddle) . I used diamond shaped plastic attachments ( like back packs use) glued to the bottom of the surfski cockpit threaded with straps to hold the camelbak in place. It holds the Camelbak in place even when dumped, as I found out when I paddled over a sleeping manatee and it knocked the surfski in the air and me out of the ski but my camelbak stayed in place .
I plan to use the same Camelbak mounting arrangement in my new Skua ARX which now has a single footwell ( like most surfskis) instead of a tunnel separating the footwells , like the older Skuas, Pelican, Marlin, and Dorado.

I usually carry one water bottle....if I carry more and drink more, then I have to pee. Because of medical reason, I can't pee sitting in a kayak....can't stand in my Hobie or I'll be wetter than I want.

Default Hydration closed loop system for Luna

With his beer keg hydration system, Luna could use my Camelbak and a catheter to create a self contained closed loop system with which he could stay out on the water fishing drinking and peeing for days.

Since Luna is retired, if he or his French Honey wants to save money, they can do this themselves per the following Utube video

Isn't the Internet wonderful?
