Just picked up my Whisky 16 after demo-ing one last fall for 3 days and taking a few day trips in a borrowed boat, and I am very excited. Had ordered it in March. I had been looking at Hurricane Kakays Cat 5, a Necky Looksha Elite, and I Necky Eliza composite. Price wise, it fell in the middle of the 2 Necky boats, came with a compass, and the seat is much more comfy than the Neckys. I do own a Necky boat already- so the seat thing is already an issue with me lol. The Cat 5 is more of a flat water boat and does not have a front bulkhead or storage for extended trips.

Footpegs are easily adjusted and feel secure. Will report back if that is not the case when I use the (optional) rudder. They did an incredible job putting this boat together!!!

I have the fiberglass layup, in a turquoise green color and it has a deep sheen and nice gel coat. I like the little hatch in the front, and the fact that it is so fun to paddle. I used it with my AB Carbon Surge, also new, and my old BB Journey.

This is my first skeg boat, but I don't thing I will need rudder much, unless things get dicey. It IS a little wobbly on the get-go, but very solid on secondary stabilty. I believe it is 57 lbs. My other boat is rotomold and about the same weight, but bulkier, so it seems harder to load than the Whisky.


I got a really good deal with a carbon fiber paddle and Ultra- Lite Spray skirt as a package with my boat. Being a female, loading and unloading are always a concern, but I was able to get it on the car and get it home in one piece and unload it pretty easily.

It is my third decent boat, and I am very happy I got it. Will report back if any of this changes.
