Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Necky Manitou 13 Kayak combines the speed and efficiency of a touring kayak with the stability of a dedicated recreational boat. You get comfortable seating, plenty of storage, and an easy-handling boat that's ideal for novice or intermediate paddlers. The Manitou 13 Kayak easily takes on close-to-shore exploration at the ocean, a blustery day trip on the lake, or an afternoon meandering along a slow-moving river.
The ultimate in versatility, the Necky Manitou is a recreational kayak with a hint of British charm. At 12' 10.5" this boat gives the feel and glide of a touring boat with the stability and comfort of a recreational kayak. From its fine bow entry to the nicely finished stern, this kayak is a straight tracking boat with plenty of initial stability and a comfortable seating position. The cockpit size allows for good ease of entry and exit without being so huge that the paddler is lost in the boat. The standard water resistant stern hatch and bulkhead provide enough storage for a day on the water along with buoyancy for safety. The Manitou's compact size and low weight make carrying or car-topping an easy task.
The Necky Manitou 13(TM) kayak delivers versatility and fun, covering miles of water with easy glide and stability that will inspire you to go the extra mile. Tough and affordable Polylite(TM) linear polyethylene hull provides long-lasting wear and resists UV degradation; molded-in graphics won't peel or fade. Sharp entry lines and extended keel provide solid tracking and enhance paddling efficiency. Generously-sized cockpit allows easy entry and exit. New for 2010, the Active Comfort System (ACS) seat offers a convenient and intuitive adjustment system. Orange pull straps provide 4 separate adjustments: backrest tilt, backrest height, lumbar support and thigh support. Lateral stabilizers lock the seat into the boat to maximize responsiveness; finger channels on the seating surface enhance airflow and drainage. ACS seat base uses a tri-laminate construction that's similar to a running shoe, providing support where you need it and softness where you want it. Large stern hatch with water-resistant neoprene seal and hardshell cover provides space for your day-tripping gear; stern bulkhead helps keep gear dry. Foam pillar in bow and bulkheaded stern enhances flotation. Bow and stern deck rigging stows extra gear securely; recessed deck fittings provide increased durability. Reflective perimeter lines enhance visibility, and recess in stern deck makes it easier to do a paddle float self rescue. Toggle handles ease transport to the water.
