    Comments about Walker Bay 10 Performance Sail Kit:

    I got the sail kit after I had gotten the Walker Bay 10 to putter around on a small creek. I have installed add-ons on cars and there is usually some glitch.
    The Walker Bay kit was the easiest install I have ever done. All the parts fit snugly and properly. Instructions were clear. The Walker Bay 10 itself is practically indestructible.
