Frequently Asked Questions

Can a 180 lb person sit in this without sitting in water?

I HIGHLY doubt it. We rented 2 of these kayaks and I was not REALLY expecting to sit in water (never used sit on top kayaks before). I am 150, with a backpack of 2 water bottles, sunscreen, bug spray... no way I was over 170. I was sitting in water upon launch on a dead calm bayou. My girl is 20lbs less, no bag, and same amount of water. We paddled for 3 hrs and crossed a very choppy bay,but nothing came over the sides of the yaks... so if you put a plug in the seat scuppers or used a raised seat, you would PROBABLY be good. This would still allow excessive water to drain by your feet. If you got SWAMPED, you could probably pull the plugs, let water out, and re-insert.... but that would depend on your stability and flexibility to kneel and turn around to pull the plugs from under your seat. Water level wasn't really ABOVE the scupper holes, but didn't take any sloshing at all for it to wet your butt/feet. I'm the one that carried these around to the water and didn't notice any water sloshing inside the yak, which would be the only thing that could make them sit lower in the water.

Would this be good on rivers?

I have taken mine on rivers, lakes, and under the Golden Gate bridge on the north side to where the old cannon bunkers are. It can navigate rivers, but because it is a sit on top, you really want to be careful on what river you want to take it on. Any river that is class 2-3 I would defiantly want to scout it out on a raft first. It is very maneuverable but because the only thing holding you in is you, one wrong step and you can be on a you tube video.So I would say for rivers that are more float style with mild rapids and shallows you would be safe, just get very comfortable with how the boat handles and then go with your experience level. Happy Paddling

Mine arrived without scuppers...is that right? Also, what's the maximum weight?

Scuppers are not included. I purchased mine separately. Not sure on the maximum weight other than advertised. You can check the Ocean Kayak website.

Can anyone tell me the depth/height of the kayak? It looks like the bow is taller than the rest of the kayak?

The bow is slightly higher, as is the stern. It's hard to get good measurements while I have it hanging on the wall. , but it's about 12-13" at the center, sweeps up an inch or two in the stern, and two or three inches on the bow. If you need exact measurement, I can pull it down this weekend and take some proper measurements.
