Please advise where to purchase replacements. It's a 15' hull. Thanks.

Chesapeake Light Craft (https://www.clcboats.com) is a Nautiraid dealer and should be able to help.

Thanks again Michael. I got a prompt polite response:

Mr. Zika,

Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding replacement parts for your Nautiraid. Unfortunately we do not offer spare parts as we only work with the kayaks only. I would recommend you reach out to Nautiraid directly for the parts.

Regards,
Nicky

I will search the internet.

Mike

Selling boats without spares is not a very good idea.

other options..

Just repair it. Pull it and patch it like a bike tube

Contact Feathercraft. A K Light or Kahuna Sponson may work

i had the same problem i have an older raid single . went through the usual routes ,even emailed the owner of nautiraid . his response was we dont make that model . the air sponsons are not full length like the new ones . at any rate no help except from sail your kayak in vermont . he tried too . still working on it .in the mean time the owner of nautiraid said fabracate a sponson from a motorcycle tube . i did. it took a while trial and erra, cut the tube added two sections and capped the ends . it worked . actually more durable the factory ones
