Kokanee Tandem: You've never seen a kayak like this before!

 Kokanee_on lake.jpgAt Lifetime, Commitment, Innovation, and Quality, is more than just a slogan, it is a way of doing business!   We are constantly working to take our kayaks to the next level, above and beyond what is already out there.  We take suggestions and advice from you, the people who use our kayaks, and incorporate that into our designs.  After a lot of hard work we’ve come up with a kayak that is like nothing you’ve ever seen!

I would like to introduce our brand new tandem kayak, the Kokanee!  It is 10'6" in length and can hold a combined weight of 425 lbs!  Sure, there are other tandem kayaks out there, but nothing as innovative and paddler friendly as our Kokanee.  We racked our brains to come up with new improvements.  We wanted to do something that wasn’t out there already.  Something that made kayaking that much more convenient and that much more fun!

There are several design factors and features that make this kayak a step above the rest.  The Kokanee has a unique fish-form bottom that is extremely stable – and we mean extremely!  You won’t have to trade stability for tracking with the Kokanee! It tracks incredibly well due to the stylish and effective tracking channels and front keel line.  This keeps you going in a straight line without having to worry about tipping over, falling out, or doing kayak donuts.  This kayak has a spectacular design, but the most exciting part about it is found in its features.

Here are a few of our engineers taking our proto-type for a test run. They sat on the edge with all their weight and the Kokanee didn't even think about turning over! Tandem.jpg


The Kokanee has several features you can’t get anywhere else.  This is the first kayak to have a Quick Release Removable Seat System.  Our new seat backs can be removed or switched to different seat positions quickly and easily.  Want to paddle tandem?  Put the two seat backs in the first and third position.  If you want to have a relaxing solo paddle, release the seat back and snap it into the center position.  You can even completely remove all the seat backs making it more convenient for storage or transportation.  In addition to this amazing, on-of-a-kind seat system, there are also two hatches, a storage area with shock cord straps, water bottle holders, paddle ledges, a front toggle handle and a rear molded in grip handle.

The Kokanee has all the features of a standard tandem with so much more. This kayak really is a step above the other tandems.  It is convenient, feature filled and affordable.  There has never been a better way to get the family and the kids outside for an adventure!  The best part is that you get all this for only $399.00, WHOA!  Head over to your local Sports Authority to pick up the next big thing in the kayak world, the Kokanee!!

Position at Lifetime Products- Watersports Marketing Manager for Lifetime and Emotion brand kayaks

How long at Lifetime Products- Since January 2012!  I came as a packaged deal with the acquisition of Emotion Kayaks where I’d been for over a year.


Topics I blog about- Events and news in water sports, places to kayak, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Any of the Kayaks and paddleboards.  One of these days I’ll get my hands on a Fold-up Trailer and a Camp and Tailgate Table!

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me- This question will always depend on the season!  When the weather outside is frightful, you can find me at one of the nearby ski resort enjoying the fresh snow and crisp air or snowshoeing through the mountains.  Once the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping, my Saturdays are spent outdoors hiking, backpacking, biking, paddle boarding or my most favorite activity of all, kayaking!  All while enjoying the company of good friends of course!

My favorite escape- Anything whitewater, whether it be kayaking or rafting.  A more relaxing escape would be taking my camera out into the wilderness to photograph everything from wildlife to serene landscapes.

Hang on! Let's Go 4-Wheeling with Our Yard Cart!
Good friends help friends in need. We had friends who needed to spread 13 yards of dirt on their lawn, so we loaned them our Lifetime Yard Cart to help make their work easier. What? Did you think I was going to say I offered to actually help spread the dirt? Hey, I said we were good friends, not great friends! (Just kidding. Marc Jenna, we love you guys!) Truth be told, the Lifetime Yard Cart was practically screaming for Marc and Jenna to borrow it. Why? Because Marc and Jenna live on an acre lot AND they own a 4-wheeler that can pull the Yard Cart in the trailer mode. This is the kind of dream job the Lifetime Yard Cart was built for. The measly six yards of compost that we spread on our yard by pushing the Yard Cart like a wheelbarrow was mere childs play compared the massive job that Marc and Jenna were going to tackle....
R2D2 and Minnie Mouse Costumes
Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween this year. We sure did! My kiddos were the perfect age this year to really enjoy it. Of course, I wouldnt being doing my doting mommy duty if I didnt brag about how cute my kiddos looked. Personally, I think they were the cutest costumes I saw...maybe just slightly prejudice, I know. :) My two-year-old daughter went as Minnie Mouse and my 6-year-old son was R2DT from Star Wars. At first I figured R2D2 would be easy to find since Star Wars is so popular right now. What I didnt realize is that R2D2 is not in the new movies and cartoons. Tons of Stormtroopers and Darth Vadar costumes were readily available, but leave it to us to pick the one character for which a costume doesnt exist. Luckily, my son LOVES to do craft projects so we decided to fully embrace his R2D2 passion and tackle ye...
Compost your clippings! Garbage Stinks. Compost Doesn’t.
I had the very unpleasant experience recently of dumping excess lawn clippings directly into my garbage can. The can set out in the sun for a few days before I brought it into the garage. A few days later, WHOA! The can smelled like a skunk had stepped in dog doo-doo, rolled around in raw sewage, and then died in there. I was reminded once again, that lawn clippings should not go directly into the garbage can! I have a composter and do a fair amount of composting. To which, I add lawn clippings when I have brown material to balance it out. The ratio is 1 part green: 20 parts brown. I am often asked by people who dont compost if the compost stinks. The answer is no. That sounds strange because of the waste product that goes into making good compost, but its true. If the proportions of green and b...
