INSTALLING THE BALLAST
It takes 30 to 45 minutes to install the Paddling Partner, which should be placed in the hatch nearest the paddler. The base mount (i.e., the black support band) can be easily cut with a standard 8 - 10 pt hand saw. Installation may require several cuts before finding the perfect, final fit. Once installed, it's important to test that the ballast system is firmly secured within the kayak. The Shake Test should be performed with a full canister.
