I got a lot of great advice here on my boat choice. Now my Inuit 13.5 just arrived, and so far the fit seems right on. I have a couple of question for other owners though, as a couple of things seem different from the website descriptions I had found.
First off, the foot pegs. From what I've seen on the web, this boat was supposed to come with rod-adjustable oversized ergonomic foot pads. The one I got has the cheap pinch-and-slide pegs, that you have to grab to move. Is that how they're supposed to be now? I noticed that when it was still called Native they advertised that, but Liquidlogic is mum on this - did they do away with that?
Also, the hatch covers are VERY loose. Pretty much falling off. I wonder if they mis-matched them or something, I asked the company.
And lastly, it seems VERY light! It is said to be quite heavy, but it feels much lighter than boats listed at 4-5 lbs less than this boat's supposed 55 lbs. I was expecting a thick, tough hull, as they claim they use the same design employed in their WW boats, but this hull seems really dainty to me…
Any thoughts from current owners would be much appreciated.
