Haven't hammock kayaked, but I'd sure like to. The kayak in this pick (that I put together from a Pygmy kit) has since had its storage hatches cutout and the cockpit cowling installed. That's as far as I got, and that was like 7 years ago. Shame on me! I can't tell you how many times a week I see that thing and think " I really need to finish that", or how often my wife says "You really need to finish that."
