Looking for a "cockpit cover" (Size #5 ? ) for a Old Town 100 kayak
I just call old town for information...
I just call old town for information on kayak & they toll me they start to make the vapor 12xts in black & cherry again. Do you know if you could have that one?
vapor 10xt and vapor 120xts. please send me price.
Not bad for casual paddling...
This kayak is actually not bad for a leisurely paddle. If you're looking for a recreational boat to use on lakes and lazy rivers, you'd be hard pressed to do much better for the price. The seat is reasonably comfortable and the cockpit is about as roomy as it gets. The XTS model is smaller volume and was originally marketed for women, but it worked well when I've used it and I'm 6'1". Tracking was decent and stability is quite high. Overall, much higher performance than the lesser (e.g. lower priced) boats one can purchase from Dick's or Bass Pro Shop.
Regarding the features, the stern well is covered, but calling it even water resistant would be a stretch. The cover literally lays on top of the well and is secured with a tiny loop of bungee cord. The cup holder in the front is too far away to access without some effort and I'm pretty tall with a long reach. The "E-Pad" is essentially a bungee loop on the side of the cockpit lip where you could secure a GPS or media player, but don't expect any protection from water. Finally, speaking of water, the drain plug is in the most frustrating location possible and you will find it impossible to easily drain the water out.
If you keep your expectations in check, and better yet, find it on sale, you'll be pleased with the purchase. Add a couple of rod holders, maybe an anchor, and you're all set for kayak fishing.
