The Lootas is a very manoeuvrable, tight-fitting kayak that
will accommodate paddlers from 120 to 200 lbs and still be able to
carry two weeks' worth of supplies. The Lootas' hull is soft chined
with a very generous rocker. The soft chine allows very easy, predictable
motion from gunwale to gunwale, which, combined with the rocker, makes
the boat's direction easy to control with boat lean and paddle strokes.
Flush hatches and deck fittings and recessed, flip-up rudder make
for a very streamlined appearance. The Lootas will appeal to a select
segment of active and reactive sea kayakers.
