    An extra two feet on its shorter sibling allows for a tracking advantage and its very spacious (50") cockpit allows for ease of access for gear and that delicious lunch you packed.

    this is the second review I…

    Submitted by: guest-paddler on 1/30/2020

    this is the second review I am submitting. The first review was positive because the kayak was new. Now a year and a half later, the seat has developed a crack that is getting more severe with use. I have tried to contact the company numerous times and my wife also has called. There is NO customer service support whatsoever. I understand the seat may not be covered with their "lifetime warranty" but at least tell me where or how I can find a replacement. My wife did manage to get the owner Mark on the phone and he said a new seat was sent out. yeah right-it never arrived. This kayak purchase was a BIG mistake-spending $2,400 on a kayak which I will soon be unable to use as it is splitting from the frame. I am not a heavy person-I only weigh 163 lbs.

    floats through the water like a dream. stable, wide open cockpit for my camera gear, easy to get in and out for a "senior", light enough to hoist it up on my car racks. Can't say enough about this, and i bought it without demo-ing it. I knew what i wanted and had demo'd a different lincoln and another brand. but this kayak was perfect for me. love it so much.

    Extremely happy with this kayak. It is so light (35 lbs for my Fiberglass/Kevlar version) and easy for me to load and unload. Seat is extremely comfortable - especially with the adjustable back rest. Handles beautifully! It seems like I'm always having to wait for the rest of my kayaking friends to catch up because I quickly take the lead.

    Lincoln kayaks are custom ordered and mine is the Big Diamond with a candy apple red deck, a sand colored hull and marlin blue trim. When the boat arrived I was very pleased. It looked spectacular and that's just the beginning. Super stable which makes getting in and out easy. I ordered mine with the Smart Trac rudder but it can track very well even with the rudder disengaged. It just glides thru the water. I was so anxious for the boat to arrive but I can truly say it was well worth the wait and the money. It's the best boat I've ever paddled and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a serious kayaker. Also Mark and his crew are great to work with. They want you to be satisfied with your purchase and you will be.
