Eddyline Sitka LT – First Impressions

Posted by on Jan 13, 2019 in Blog, Clavey News | 0 comments

When news first leaked out on the new mid-size Sitka LT day touring boat from Eddyline Kayaks, I was excited! For our area, I’ve often felt that a boat in the 14’ range is somewhat perfect: short enough to maneuver but long enough for decent tracking and hull speed; and with enough space for a quick overnighter.

Keep it out of the sun.  Keep it properly supported. That’s about it. But in more detail, keep these things in mind: Salt water and sun is the enemy of everything. Saltwater can be very damaging to kayaks and will eat deck cord, bungee rigging, seat material, handles, lifejackets, wetsuits you name it. Therefore rinse everything off with fresh water after every use. We can’t stress this enough. If you do nothing else, at least do this step. Once you’ve rinsed everything off, use a mild detergent for stubborn...
