Compass Cayak introduces four new models
March 16, 2005 - Compass Cayak ("pronounced "kayak")
has recently introduced four new
Cayaks for the fast growing sport of kayak fishing. "We
married the speed, stability, and ease of paddling a kayak with
the gear carrying capacity, openness, and comfort of a canoe
thus creating a Cayak. The Compass Cayak has a rounded
hull shape with no rocker for speed and is quicker than kayaks
the same length," said Joel Flather, Owner of Compass Cayak.
In a press release, the company
discussed the following items.
Stability is better than a canoe
and equal to most kayaks. The seat is on the floor like a kayak
and a double bladed paddle is used like a kayak but it's even
easier to paddle because it's lighter, MUCH LIGHTER!!! Our 10'6"
Streamer weighs just 18 LBS and the 12'9" Tippet weighs
just 22 LBS! Unlike a conventional kayak, they have tons of space
for camping gear, a picnic lunch, fishing tackle and space to
take home your catch. The open cockpit means instant access to
everything while out on the water. No deck means no claustrophobia
and no need to learn how to Eskimo Roll.
Greater comfort comes from the
hull shape that lifts the Cayak up and over boat wakes
and harbor chop.Traditional kayak hulls are designed to drive
through waves and wakes, which make them very wet necessitating
decks and spray skirts. The standard seats are designed with
high, supporting backrests for people with bad backs. They fold
down and lock for car topping. Kayak foot braces are standard
as well so people can change leg positions easily. For dedicated
fishermen who are on the water for three or four hours, these
comfort features are important.
The marriage between the two
hull types has been perfect and the reception has been fantastic.
