That's an interesting problem, but don't you think that a manufacturer would think the simple H shape [without channel] would be a brilliant way to align both wobbly halves of the kayak when trying to align in-or-out when assembling . . .
That was the thought, I guess.

'Quick and cheap assembly method used' isn't something I look for when buying a kayak!
:)
I was told that Eddyline -who used H-channel a lot - were known as 'Eddyleak kayak' for years.

I wouldn't buy an H-channel kayak.

I was recently helping a buddy who had the same problems mentioned above with threading a new rudder cable through his old CD boat - it kept hanging up just behind the cockpit. In the end he had to use a Dremel to grind out access to the snag, then glass over the access hole.
