Necky Chatham 17 Sea Touring Kayak w/ Skeg - An ideal explorer built to minimize windage, the Chatham 17 w/ Skeg offers great maneuverability and superb rough water performance. The full-chined hull provides incredible stability for its width and quick response to edging and lean turns. Designed to inspire confidence, it allows you to push your limits and expand your comfort zone. A retractable skeg featuring kink-free NeckyWire, allows you to adjust the trim of your kayak in windy conditions, reducing fatigue and making a significant difference in your boat's ability to track. The outfitting is relaxed and roomy. Made of water-resistant durable molded foam, the seat is designed specifically to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve. By actually improving blood circulation, you'll be able to paddle longer distances without your feet and legs falling asleep. Adjustable backband, thigh braces and foot pedals allow you to further customize the fit. Three bulkheads and water-resistant Valley hatches complete the package. Optimized for long-distance exploration and multi-day trips, the Chatham truly excels at coastal exploration. Note: Each multicolor boat is unique, and color patterns vary boat to boat.

Don't forget a spray skirt and cockpit cover! A skirt is important for keeping water out of the boat and the cockpit cover helps keep out rain, dust, and things that crawl! A size 1.4 Deck Seals skirt and cockpit cover fits the Chatham 17.

    Shopping Info

    This yak rocks! I am new to kayaking but have several friends who are not. My experience was nothing but positive. I have tried several other kayaks owned by my friends and was a little nervous because they all felt unstable at some point. Not so with the Chatham - ROCK SOLID! My confidence level soared with it under me. After an hour or so I let my friends put it through its paces. They were astounded. Comments like "the best kayak I have ever been in" were the norm. They could not believe it. Being a novice I can only say the fun factor on this kayak is in a class by itself. This is something you must see for yourself!

    We bought two Chatham 17 Kayaks about a year and a half ago. We love these yaks! We've each tipped once - but that was early on and followed silly moves. We're still learning but have no regrets and look forward to years of use from these Necky Chatham 17's.
