Seaward Chilco Kayak



Show Description

With minimal rocker, this expedition craft flies fast and true on long crossings. The exceptionally low profile slips through headwinds and rolls easily when seas are extra-sporty. Highly-defined chines let you lean and carve with confidence through surfy reefs into the calm of sheltered coves.

  • Shallow V cross-section makes the hull stable at rest or underway.
  • Ergonomic cockpit for easy entry and exit.
  • Built-in thigh braces allow kayakers from small to large to paddle with comfort and control.
  • Recessed deck fittings reduce hang-ups.
  • Heavy-duty plastic keel guard protects the bottom of the stern during landings.
  • Surf-style rudder pivots 270 degrees into V-bracket on rear deck.
  • Lowering and raising lines for the rudder are on opposite sides of the cockpit to minimize confusion.
  • Secure nylon straps hold the paddle steady for paddle-float self-rescues. Quick-release tabs free it rapidly after re-entry.
  • Lightweight adjustable lockout foot pedals.
