("pronounced "kayak") has recently introduced four new
CayaksT for the fast growing sport of kayak fishing.
We married the
speed, stability, and ease of paddling a kayak with the gear carrying
capacity, openness, and comfort of a canoe thus creating a CayakT. The
Compass CayakT has a rounded hull shape with no rocker for speed and
is quicker than kayaks the same length. Stability is better than a
canoe and equal to most kayaks. The seat is on the floor like a kayak
and a double bladed paddle is used like a kayak but it's even easier
to paddle because it's lighter, MUCH LIGHTER!!!
Streamer weighs just 18 LBS and the 12'9" Tippet weighs just 22
LBS! Unlike a conventional kayak, they have tons of space for camping
gear, a picnic lunch, fishing tackle and space to take home your
catch. The open cockpit means instant access to everything while out
on the water. No deck means no claustrophobia and no need to learn how
to Eskimo Roll. Greater comfort comes from the hull shape that lifts
the CayakT up and over boat wakes and harbor chop.
kayak hulls are designed to drive through waves and wakes, which make
them very wet necessitating decks and spray skirts. The standard seats
are designed with high, supporting backrests for people with bad
backs. They fold down and lock for car topping. Kayak foot braces are
standard as well so people can change leg positions easily.
fishermen who are on the water for three or four hours, these comfort
features are important. The marriage between the two hull types has
been perfect and the reception has been fantastic.
