Necky Looksha 14 w/ Rudder Touring Sea Kayak - The sporty Necky Looksha 14 is a kayak that can carry a load. Sleek lines combined with a large roomy cockpit make the Looksha 14 perfect for touring and coastal exploring. The Looksha 14 has excellent tracking and glide, while offering great edge control with a smooth transition between primary and secondary stability. Designed for all day comfort, the adjustable ACS seat tailors individual backrest height, thigh support, lumbar support and backrest angle to provide a truly customized ride. Comfort Fit foam thigh braces provide the ultimate and control, and can be adjusted to provide a perfect fit for almost any leg length. Sealed bow and stern hatches use the unique Cross Lock buckle system. Simple and secure, the X-pattern and low anchor points allow for excellent pressure that is evenly distributed around the hatch cover. A retractable aluminum rudder helps tracking in wind and strong currents, and reflective deck rigging keeps you visible. The perfect choice for those looking for a kayak that has the gear capacity of an SUV with the look and feel of a sports car, the Necky Looksha 14 sea kayak handles conditions and gear with ease.
Please 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 2.2 Deck Seals skirt and cockpit cover fits the Looksha 14.
I enjoyed the Looksha 14's comfort and handling. Very large cockpit, but there is enough adjustment to the seat and thigh braces to make it comfortable for just about anyone. The foot pedals are easily adjusted as well, and allow one to fit the cockpit and thigh braces to maximum advantage. I found the seat back a bit high - though very comfortable. I might agree with the prior review that the seat back gets in the way during rescue. Though I am perhaps advanced novice or beginning intermediate in skill-set, escape was easy, and with the large cockpit re-entry as well. The boat tracks very well. The lower back deck makes the wind affect it very little, at least in moderate winds. Longest paddle thus far was a trek down the sound side of Navarre Beach, in light winds, maybe 1 1/2 with a rare 2 foot wave ... no issues whatsoever... tracks well, slight adjustment to strokes to maintain track (I don't have a rudder on mine). Very stable - didn't try to edge much for turning as I didn't use the spray deck, but I would agree with previous reviewer that it would take a bit of lean to create the edge turning, given the stability of the boat. I think this will be a great boat for my day / overnight touring...(I also picked up a Prowler 13 for fishing... like that too, for its intended use).
It's nice, I like it and the storage is great! There is only one minor problem that I have... The dry storage containers have a neoprene lid and it is a pain in the butt to get that thing on! Once you figure it out, it works great though. I would buy this kayak again.
