Would be interesting to know if the newly imported Ok kayaks still have metric thread inserts?

UNF thread (not M5) M5 will start but locks up after one turn and will damage the insert or pull the insert out

All Ocean Kayak retailers can get them as Cameron Sports is holding stock. Rob Fort has his own stock in most sizes and would be my first call

Hi Rainbow
the thread is UNF as winch has already mentioned and the size is 3/16
We have a number of lengths available so if you need some then give us a call.

Thanks, All my OK kayaks are NZ made and have metric inserts. I was just wondering about the US imports.

Yep, UNF which is pretty annoying to find here so talk to the suppliers or Rob etc. Otherwise they are great craft - except for that silly lid they ship with it :D
