Hi,

Re: Dagger Stratos Stern Perception Logo Missing

I expect I am being a fusspot. But the bow hatch cover, has the logo, but the stern cover is plain. Is that normal?

Cheers

New or secondhand?
Hatch covers perish over time, 3rd party replacements may have different or no logos.

It's secondhand, but as new. So it's not perished. Let's assume for the sake of the argument it's new. Should both bow and stern covers bear the Perception logo?

I don't think either should have the Perception logo, both should have the Dagger logo, see https://youtu.be/3YBKa3n7qdU

So far as I know, Dagger and Perception are competing companies, but they may use the same hatch supplier, with custom logos.

Here is a bit of info about who owns what. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confluence_Outdoor
I often use spares from one company for another companies boats as, not surprisingly they have many parts in common.
In the UK some of those brands are "controlled" by Palm and some by Gaybo.

Thanks, Stuart. So Dagger and Perception are owned by the same conglomerate (and have similar hatch covers with different logos).

That's brilliant. So they own all these:-

2.1 Adventure Technology
2.2 Dagger Kayaks
2.3 Harmony Gear
2.4 Mad River Canoe
2.5 Perception Kayaks
2.6 Wave Sport Kayaks
2.7 Wilderness Systems

This is the reply from Palm UK:-

All our new Stratos are fitted with blank hatches now as this is what we call a rolling change to the spec of the kayak. We probably ran out of the large Oval ones on the back before the small round one on the front.
