Elie Gulf 120 XE Sit-On-Top Kayak Review:


Initial Impressions after first outing

So far, only one use on a larger reservoir, a windy day. Tracks great, and as advertised, super comfortable seating. Roomy, dry cockpit (I'm 6-0, 185#) and didn't need the scupper plugs that came with the boat. Very stable and confidence-inspiring, so I'm looking forward to my next paddle which will be on a tidal river.

Cons: Seatback angle is adjustable via straps; the retaining slot fingers for the strap broke on the first use. Seat's still adjustable but this needs to be resolved somehow. On the topic of seat: I rooftop on Yakima J-racks. The boat develops a nice hum >55 mph up there! And you can't transport upside-down else the seatback would hit the roof of your car - it's not hinged, rather it's on a stiff plastic tongue with no means to easily fold it flat into the hull. You have to roof it either on its keel or sideways on J-racks.

Nit: the stick-on hull lettering ("Elie") doesn't stick on, some of the letters peeled off while I was handling the boat to/from the water, so I just I removed the rest of the lettering, no biggie. Again, a nit.
