The Tallikut is aimed at entry level paddlers searching for a light and responsive recreational kayak. Ideal for bays and lakes, its moderate chine typical of Greenland style hulls delivers a high initial stability while enhancing maneuverability. Though designed for recreational paddling, the Tallikut is outfitted with features typically found in touring kayaks. Each Tallikut comes equipped with two storage compartments with sealed fiberglass bulkheads, rubber hatches, and an adjustable seat back. Traditional toggle handles at either end allow for easy lifting, while generous deck bungees allow you to secure additional gear while underway. Larger paddlers will also enjoy the extra room in the 35" x 18" cockpit which allows for easy entry and exit. Pick up a lightweight Tallikut and see how easy it is to get away for a fun paddle on the bay! 

Beam - Width of a kayak when measured at its widest point

Bulkhead - A partition inside the kayak that creates a separate watertight compartment for gear stowage and safety buoyancy

Chine - Where the curving sides of the hull gradually merge into the bottom

Cockpit - The opening in the kayak deck in which the paddler sits

Deck - The top of the kayak

Keel -The centerline ridge that runs along the hull of the kayak from bow to stern that helps maintain a straight course and provides stability

Rocker - The upward sweep of the keel toward the bow and stern. The more pronounced the rocker, the easier the kayak is to pivot

Stability - How easily the boat stays right-side-up in the water

Primary Stability - Primary stability is the relative stability of a boat that is sitting flat on the water right-side-up. A wider base gives increased primary stability

Secondary Stability - Secondary stability comes into play when the boat is turned on its side. The more surface area touching the water equals better stability. Good secondary stability helps keep the kayak upright when the paddler's balance goes beyond the primary stability

Skeg - A small fin mounted on the stern keel that provides increased tracking in windy conditions on rudderless kayaks
