In 1998, after a number of wonderful years, I sold my Necky Arluk III to a friend (who still paddles it)and then set about to buy a "better" boat. On the water, I tried the top boats in its class by 4 different manufacturers other than Necky. I could not find a better all-around boat. I bought 2 new kevlar Arluk IIIs which my wife and I paddle to this day. This boat fits a wide variety of friends, has a fast, good tracking waterline, and does very well for week long trips when loaded. I tried to find a better boat and couldn't.
