  Deck & Cover
  Posted by: Dilligaf0220 on Feb-12-14 10:29 AM (EST)

Except a deck does more than function as just a spray cover. The slab sided freeboard & high stems are cut down quite a bit. Paddle reach is cut down, better angle easier, better stroke mechanics achieved easier.

When I say windage is reduced, I mean it is reduced to a point where the guys in plastic SOT kayaks I fish with are blown around more.

And the seat in the Canak is the same as the Prism. At 8" off the floor I'm pretty sure it's the same height too.
It's not a sit on the floor Placid boat, you're up sitting on a proper canoe seat in a proper canoe stance.
