Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Delta Kayaks Catfish 12.5 with rudder sit-on-top kayak uses an innovative, catamaran-style hull to achieve incredible stability and excellent tracking. Thermoformed ABS plastic hull material is stiff and light like traditional composite kayaks and offers similar looks, but costs considerably less. Specially coated exterior offers a new, shiny appearance for years to come- the Catfish does not suffer from the gradual fade typical of composite watercraft. Catamaran-style hull enhances stability without adding the width typical of standard sit-on-top kayaks. Molded cockpit area with adjustable foot pegs personalizes comfort to fit most any size paddler; adjustable backrest increases comfort. Rudder enhances tracking and navigation; control the rudder using adjustable foot pegs. Rudder is stored under hull and preserves the clean appearance of craft. Clear window lets you view the environment below the surface. The Catfish floats high for a dry ride in the water, but should you take on an errant wave, scupper holes quickly drain excess water. 2 hatches offer dry storage for small accessories; forward bulkhead keeps items dry. Space in the cockpit is specifically designed to nest with hard-shell dry cases (dry case not included). Cup holder near the cockpit offers easy access to beverages. Rear storage well with bungee rigging offers plenty of room for take-along gear and features indentations that work great with scuba tanks. Paddle-keeper offers a hands-free option for photographers and anglers. Specialized lash point behind seat allows you to add stability to the kayak by creating a makeshift outrigger with your paddle. Attach paddle floats to your paddle and lash the shaft of the paddle behind the seat so that it's perpendicular to the kayak (paddle floats sold separately). Resulting cross shape provides unbeatable stability for standing, fishing, photography and even an afternoon siesta.
