Necky Vector 14 Kayak - The Vector 14 kayak by Necky isn't your traditional sit-on-top. Designed to push the performance envelope, the high secondary stability allows you to lean turn or set it up on edge with ease. The lengthened waterline gives you an easy glide with superior tracking, while a slightly flattened stern minimizes drag. A durable waterproof seat and adjustable outfitting reduce pressure points and improve blood flow. Behind you, an innovative nylon tank well cover with multiple adjustment points provides secure storage. The Quick Seal bow hatch and stern hatches give you plenty of additional room for your weekend getaway. The Necky Vector 14 kayak is the rare sit-on-top that gives you the best of both worlds.
Just got back from my new Vector's maiden voyage. My first SOT kayak. 32 miles on the Etowah River. 16 down stream and 16 up stream with a head wind. The boat tracked and turned well. For a SOT I'd say it performed well. Paddles easier than the 14' Tarpon but still is not as efficient as a smaller sit inside boat. I have a 17' Storm GT and a 13' Necky Manitou so I'm accustomed to easier paddling.The boat was easy to paddle as long as I did not try to exceed its capability. It paddles with no effort at about 3 MPH but to go faster you have to work harder. Even against a strong current I maintained fairly good speed. All in all I'd say I'm about as happy as I could be with a SOT. The main reason I got a SOT was to carry a cooler...go figure!
Coming from a Hobie Kona, this thing is like a rocket ship. It's a complete departure from any sit-on-top I've paddled. It's light, fast, tracks great and is a joy to paddle in comparison. It feels a lot like a sit-inside with regard to its primary stability. Overall paddling effort is great. I don't have a lot of time in the boat yet and I plan to get it on Tahoe within a week. I'm anxious to see how it handle the afternoon chop. My only complaint is where the outside of my knees hit, right where the rudder cable come out of the hull toward the foot controls. A little self-adhering padding ought to take care of that in short order.
