The fish are waiting, and the quickest way to get there is in a Scupper.
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.
The Adventure Version of the Scupper 14 includes a four inch hatch in the tankwell as well as one directly facing the cockpit. The cockpit hatch has an insert bag that is great for storing your personal items, which 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. Inside the bow hatch you’ll find storage for two rods on both sides. It’s the most fishable Scupper kayak ever made.
Seleact Designs has built the ultimate rudder that just so happens to slide nicely into the Scupper deck when not in use. Their TruCourse Rudder system keeps you on track at all times and saves you energy that you can direct towards paddling forward.
