Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed with a spacious interior, the Native Watercraft Ultimate 14.5 tandem kayak offers twice the fun. The Native Watercraft Ultimate 14.5 tandem kayak well-suited to fishing, photography and bird watching on lakes and slow moving water. Polyethylene construction offers performance and rugged durability. Part of what makes the Ultimate 14.5 tandem so friendly to any paddler is the double-concave, "tunnel" hull that enhances stability. Low-profile sides resist high winds, and clutter free area directly in front of seats won't snag your fishing line. Concave foot wells offer a place to stand that puts your center of gravity close to the waterline, and makes it easy to sight cast or pole the kayak in shallow water. The seat on the Ultimate 14.5 tandem features 2 layers of padding to enhance comfort on the water and an embroidered logo. Elevating you above the point where water might collect, the seats consist of a UV- and water-resistant mesh fabric stretched over an anodized aluminum frame. Seat back adjusts backward and forward, and seat pan provides 3 different levels of thigh support. Seats may be removed completely to lighten the kayak when loading on your vehicle, and tandem kayak may be converted to a solo configuration. Footbraces adjust forward and backward and can be completely removed to reduce snags. Elbow pads and knee pads enhance the comfort in the cockpit. Soft handles at bow and stern.
