Color Selection for Ocean Kayak
« on: March 19, 2011, 10:06:06 pm »
So, I read somewhere that new Ocean kayak boats come out with more color selection in the future after their new product has been out fora  while.

For example the Ultra 4.7 comes in Yellow and Camo.

Does anyone know of this fact?
I really want the kayak in Sand color.

I was wondering if its true?
Should I wait?

Yes this is true but Camo is about 300$ more. Sand is the same colour I got however I have the Prowler Trident 15 Angler. Sand is a very nice looking colour, I'd buy it again anywhere.

I take it youre looking towards a Camo rig?
keep in mind the more incognito you are the hard it will be for a boater to see you, and the potential for getting hit increases.  you are going to be low to the water, and you need to be extra weary of how you appear.  You seem to be looking to match your entire set up, which is fine, but you really need to get something to make you stand out from your surroundings.  ... Just a thought.

If you go to their website it shows that you can order Camo under the Features.

What a nice yak! If I was in the market for a paddle kayak I would definitely consider the 4.7.

Have you seen the ice box?

I just looked at the Ice box online about 15 mins ago. The Ultra seems like a better kayak compared to the prowler

Hey; I actually like the Camo.
But I am more into the'Sand' color.

If the Sand is not available.
I'm going Yellow.
And match everything up with Ywllow/Black/White.
So, Yellow Kayak, Black PFD which will match the accesories on the kayak, White Paddle to match my Ice Box on the Ultra 4.7.
Haha.

So, I guess i'll look like a Banana at th Windsor Tournament.
Maybe I can name my boat the Bumblebee.  ::)

But do the carpets match the drapes?  ;D It's only cammo if you drag it on shore and throw it in the bushes, a cammo kayak would be blue with waves painted on the sides and clouds painted on the bottom, Cammo kayaks are for hunting ducks and geese. You sit in some reeds and weeds and when the birds fly over you blend in with your surroundings and are harder for them to see. hence the term cammo. If you think the fish can't "see" cammo your just not thinking right, a cammo boat is no more usefull than wearing cammo pants and a cammo jacket when fishing.

I read somewhere that because of the way water refracts light that fish do see sort of off to the side when they're looking up and out of the water. Sort of like if you're fishing from the shore and there are rocks and trees behind you, they can see the rocks and trees, as well as the sky.

But it is hard to know how another animal other than humans actually perceives light.
