Swell uses the high end Sealect Designs’ Trucourse Rudder System, which slides nicely into the Scupper deck when not in use. It tracks you straight, keeps you safe and gets you more miles on less calories. It also allows you to cut through wind and chop without contorting your body.
The Adventure Version comes with this package and includes a four inch hatch in the tankwell as well as one directly facing the cockpit. Both have a sweet insert bag that is great for storing your personal items, and is easily removable when you want access to the hull. Two fishing rod holders sit behind the seat. Deck pads in the footwell and tankwell areas keep things quiet, increasing your ability to stalk your prey. One of the tankwell scuppers is fitted for a fishfinder, the other for a live baitwell. It has built in channels for wiring.
Here’s the deal with this kayak: In the 1970’s Tim Niemier began building sit-on-top kayaks in Malibu, CA. In the 1980’s he started a revolution with his Scupper line of plastic kayaks. Over the next few decades these kayaks reigned supreme. Until now. The Swell Watercraft Scupper 14 was born as Tim’s final installment in the series. Tim’s concept was to lower the footwells below the waterline, which had never been done in a sit-on-top. This would lower the center of gravity, creating leverage, shrink the paddle entry zone, allow for superior body position and a more narrow hull.
So this is it- the “swan song” from the most famous sit on top kayak designer of all time. Super charged with a sophisticated rudder system backed by an American manufacturer.
