Here's what other sites are saying:
Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? The Delta 16 kayak with rudder offers a finely tuned hull design and well-placed storage, perfect for that tour you've been dreaming about. Sweet! Thermoformed ABS plastic hull material is stiff and light like traditional composite kayaks and offers similar looks, but costs considerably less. Long waterline, soft chine and concave sidewall create a kayak that instantly responds to your intentions. Cockpit of the 16 is 2 in. narrower than other Delta models, resulting in a close-fitting, performance fit and feel. Seat is adjustable 4 in. forward and backward even while paddling, so the trim of the kayak can be adjusted on the move. Neoprene-padded seat and adjustable back band offer comfort and support on long trips; neoprene padding on leg bracing in the cockpit improves comfort and control. Cockpit-adjustable footbraces fit most paddlers and integrated thighbraces increase overall comfort. Cockpit-deployable rudder enhances tracking in rough water and windy conditions; control the rudder with the footbraces. 3 storage areas provide ample space for every accoutrement: 2 main dry storage areas and a fore day hatch are placed within easy reach. Day hatch features a specially sized pod glued to underside of deck. Redesigned hatch covers create a watertight seal with a specially designed gasket that envelops the rim of the hatch; secures with 4.5 turns. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern retains extra gear; safety straps aft of cockpit and nylon perimeter lines aid in paddle float self-rescue. The Delta 16 kayak with rudder features ergonomic, rubber grab handles that are very easy on tired hands.
