Taming the Sailor in You

The sit-on-top kayak, or SOT, is the most popular, widely-known kayak design today. Although some models may resemble traditional sit-in kayaks in terms of hull shape, the two types of kayaks are quite different. With a traditional kayak, the paddler’s legs and lower body are enclosed within the boat’s hull. Often, a spray skirt covers the cockpit opening and wraps around paddler’s waist, creating a seal that keeps water out of the hull. This is common in traditional white water and ocean kayaks. In contrast, the paddler of an SOT sits in a molded depression on top of the hull, with the legs and lower body exposed.

Measuring 13-feet, 10-inches long by 29-inches wide and with a total load limit of 450 pounds, the X-13 Fish and Dive Package Sit-on-Top Kayak is the ultimate cross-performance recreational and fishing kayak.

Equipped with a large Gator Hatch in the bow with a bungee system and a large, “live well” open rear well–the X-13 can carry lots of gear including a cooler or 5-gallon bait bucket.

Both the front and rear of the kayak are equipped with 2 rod holders each for optimum fishing. The wide cockpit area features a center hatch, comfortable and dry seating, and an adjustable foot track system. In addition, the X-13 is equipped with a cup holder, eyelets, a drain plug with base, nylon hooks, bow and stern handles, and side carry handles/paddle holders.
