Old Town Vashon 146 Kayak with Rudder

The Old Town Vashon 146 kayak with rudder combines the stability of an entry-level kayak with the performance of more refined touring models. The Old Town Vashon 146 is perfect for casual paddlers looking to explore lakes, bays and gentle rivers. Polyethylene offers excellent durability and easy care. Stabil-form(TM) hull design delivers outstanding stability and speed with exceptional tracking for its length. Active Comfort System (ACS) seat offers a convenient and intuitive adjustment system. Orange pull straps provide 4 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 trilaminate construction that’s similar to a running shoe, providing support where you need it and softness where you want it. Padded thighbraces and adjustable footbraces personalize the boat fit to enhance stability and control while paddling. Cockpit-deployable rudder helps you paddle in a straight line. Angled bow cockpit rim makes it easy to read maps, and a day hatch protects small items from splashes. Stern and bow hatches seal with a cross-lock cover, and stern and bow bulkheads help keep contents dry. Bungee deck rigging at bow and stern secures extra gear on board; toggle carry handles offer convenient transport to and from the water. Paddle keeper holds paddle secure when taking pictures, birding or fishing.
