Eddyline Carribbean Angler

Eddyline Carribbean Angler

$ 1,529.00 USD

Brief Description

The Caribbean's stability is extraordinary. The highly efficient Eddyline hull design and our smooth Carbonlite material lets her glide through the water with ease. Tracking is exceptional for a twelve footer, making travel over distance much easier. For the 14 footer, recommend a model with a rudder to help with tracking. Overall, both models offer easy turns which is accomplished through a slight lean and sweep. Eddyline applied the principals of the unique Gull Wing configuration on the Caribbean hull to retain efficiency and excellent tracking while maximizing stability. The extra sitting height produced by this configuration allows more comfortable seating while helping the cockpit and tank well to drain effectively.

Detailed Description

The large front hatch, center day hatch and rear hatch give easy access to most of the interior space. Sea Dog foot pedals, comfortable carbon side carry handles, mounting tracks for numerous accessories and an abundance of mounting surfaces provide a variety of options for customizing the boat to suit your specific needs. An optional foot controlled rudder and rear tank well cover complete the package. The Caribbean has a comfortable, high back seat and the seat well even has its own drain to keep you dry. Two scuppers in the cockpit and two in the tank well keep the deck drained well up to loads of 300 lbs.

Beautifully finished with our high gloss UV resistant Carbonlite material, you are bound to appreciate all that we have incorporated into this exciting kayak.

Options include: Footewell traction pads, Foot Controlled Rudder, Stern Tankwell Cover, Flush Mount Rod Holders

For the Caribbean 14 as well as most SOT kayaks over 14' long, we highly recommend having a rudder because kayaks this length and longer are harder to steer and more affected by wind than shorter kayaks. People who buy these without rudders often come back to have a rudder retro-fitted and that costs twice as much as a factory installed rudder system. We list the price of the Caribbean 14 w/o rudder for comparison only. An Eddyline factory installed foot controlled rudder is only $250 extra.

Eddyline Kayak's Caribbean Angler kayaks are the lightest SOT fishing kayaks of their respective sizes anywhere. Unlike roto-molded polyethylene kayaks, Eddyline's thermoformed kayaks have the stiffness and resistance to warping like a fiberglass kayak but without the fragile gelcoat. In fact the Carbonlite material used to build the Eddyline thermoformed kayaks resists scratching and abrasion better than gelcoat, fiberglass, or polyethylene. So if you have to drag your kayak up the beach (which we try to avoid, but there are times you just have to) it's better to drag a thermoformed Carbonlite kayak than any other. Also the lighter the kayak the easier it is to drag (heavy kayaks dig a deep trench in the sand when you drag them) and the less wear and tear dragging does to the hull.

Gunwale tracks are used for mounting rod holders, fish finder, GPS, etc. at any spot you want along the gunwales.
