17' Riot Touring SOT
« on: April 05, 2011, 01:19:46 pm »
Can anyone give me a yay or a nay on this kayak? Seems like a great price, although I'm not sure how I'll feel about the SOT. Compared to my inflatable it'd be a dream I'm sure, and I love making impulse buys off Kijiji, but any input anyone might have would be fantastic!

Well 17' for a lake is a bit long and will be difficult to turn, although I see it does have a rudder.  This looks more like a speed touring yak than a fishing craft but the price is very good (likely because this exact yak has been on kijiji since this time last year).  You would need to buy an ocean kayak style seat to put on it, and its likely got a narrow beam, I'm guessing <28" so you would likely want to sit straddled a lot while fishing.

That's the kind of info I was looking for, thanks. I didn't have anywhere handy to store it anyway, might as well keep saving my pennies or pull off that lotto win I've been hunting for and buy something I want to keep around for a while.
