The Carolina 14.0 offers a very comfortable ride over long distances. Bow and stern bulkheads add great storage capability.
Offering a touch more speed and greater tracking than its 12 ft. counterpart, the Perception Carolina 14.0 kayak offers the capacity and performance to go on longer trips. V-shaped hull with soft chines makes the Perception Carolina 14.0 kayak stable and easy to paddle in relatively calm waters. Upswept, flared bow improves handling while crossing waves. Rigid polyethylene hull withstands years of use without need for maintenance. Zone DLX seat features a foam-encased pocket that cradles the lower back. Seat adjusts forward and backward, up and down, and leg lifters offer additional support if needed. Backrest may be raised by pulling strap in front of seat forward or by pushing the button on front of seat to lower. Leg lifters raise seat pan to increase support and take pressure off the ankles. Knee pads allow you to place knees inside cockpit or outside without discomfort. Foot-pedal-controlled rudder system with cockpit deployment controls helps with steering and tracking when you need it most. Great for day trips or overnight adventures, the 10 in. bow and oval stern hatches provide access to dry storage space for fishing supplies, picnic staples and camping gear. Dual-density hatch covers are stiff and durable, yet their soft, flexible edges make them easy to use; plus, they form a tight seal to keep contents dry. To seal hatch cover, simply catch the lip under the rim and press it on like the top of a rubberized food-storage container. Bow and stern bulkheads help keep hatch contents organized and dry when hatches are sealed. Deck rigging on bow and stern lets you stash items you'll want readily available, such as a bilge pump, extra paddle, and map with weatherproof case, not included. Reflective perimeter deck lines boost visibility and provide a firm handhold for reentering kayak after a wet exit.
Load up your gear for the day or weekend and set out to explore the offshore islands or tranquil river in the Perception Carolina 14. 0 Kayak. Built for long-distance comfort, speed, and easy handling, the Carolina 14. 0 is your ticket to aquatic escapes.
