Valley Kayak Skeg Poly Tube

$ 29.00 USD

This is the Poly-Tube that the steel skeg cable slides in. It is about 8' long which is longer than needed and you will need to cut it to fit your kayak - use a "tube cutter" to make a clean, square cut).

If you are replacing this tube you will also need to replace the compression fitting (or at least the brass ring piece of the compression fitting) at the back end of the boat (where the poly-tube connects to the skeg box). You will need two 13mm open end wrenches to tighten this compression fitting (one wrench to hold the brass fitting that is screwed into the skeg box and the second wrench to tighten the nut part of the fitting that is on the poly-tube). When tightened, the brass ring is permanently compressed onto the poly-tube (so the old one can't be re-used).

Put the front end (the controller end) of the skeg system together before cutting this poly-tube and cinching the compression fitting at the skeg box end.
