The Lightning 17 is a full sized sea/touring kayak. We know of paddlers who have packed a month’s gear in her hatches! A good boat for accommodating a larger person or for long distance paddling. Even smaller paddlers 5’4” and 120 lbs. can handle her. This kayak has a stable multi chine (three) hull that tracks beautifully. Though in most cases not necessary if at some point you decide to install a rudder, we also supply rudder kits. The Lightning 17 is sleek, rugged, beautiful and fast, an excellent day paddler. Inexperienced paddlers enjoy the Lightning 17, and if you are an experienced paddler, you can make her dance.
