Coho Hi Kit Description

The Coho is named after the famous Coho salmon of the Northwest. Like her namesake, she flows fast, light, and lean through the water. John Lockwood created the Coho with the skilled paddler in mind, yet she is stable enough to delight beginners. Kayakers who enjoy high maneuverability and seek top cruising speed love this craft. John worked intensely at his computer and then produced 3 prototypes until he reached a perfect equation for the Coho: a quick turning, responsive hull carefully designed to track without requiring a rudder. She possesses more rocker than our other solo kayaks for those paddlers who enjoy that "flexible" feel.

I started this kit at a workshop at the Apalachicola Maritime Museum, then finished it at home. This is a great boat! It's lightweight and tracks like a dream. It has plenty of gear storage space, I have paddled it for up to seven-day self supported trips, carrying everything necessary, including water. I'm glad I got the high volume version, as it would otherwise be cramped for my size 12 feet. This is a beautiful boat it gets lots of attention and compliments every time I take it out.
