Here's the video.  What do you guys think.  First Jackson leaks a west coast offshore kayak (ala Jim Sammons) and now Wildy has one.  It's good to see the tide turn.  "Bass Yaks" are so last year.

Any idea about the kayak weight?

Wonder if this boat will have a center hatch like OC, Jackson, RTM, etc.?

With the way the profile and rocker is, the front, back deck and such looks, it kinda of reminds me of an X-Factor with more hatch. interesting. I'd be interested to hear boat weight and load capacity....

I like the trend but the west coast saltwater market is relatively small compared to freshwater.  WS kayaks tend to be a little heavier so will be interested in how much it weighs.

I was pretty much set on the 14' Eddyline for next season, looks like there is something else to checkout. Like everyone else I wonder what it weighs?

2015 might be the year of the "offshore" kayaks.

It should weight about the same as a Tarpon. Not finalized yet. Pretty high  load capacity like a Ride 135.  All I know. ;-)

Wildy boats weigh a bit more than some, but that is because of the thicker plastic. No hull flex on these boats. They will not deform in the sun as some boats do.

What is the definition of "offshore"? I think most kayakers fish ocean waters that are usually called inshore?

Well, that's why I asked.  I actually think that "offshore conditions" is more appropriate, the primary component defining offshore being swell.

It's funny cuz its true!  :smt001

I have been paddling a cuda14 for the last year, which is a bass boat for sure.  The cuda has been nice to fish from, and was an excellent platform for freshwater AOTY (especially sturgeon), but I am getting tired of pushing water and feeling like a slug in the ocean.  I am looking forward to a more aggressive boat, and I hope the new Wildie and Jackson offshore boats will be just that.  However, I have a feeling that I will will probably be going with something like an eddyline, or one of the new Stealth boats to start learning and enjoying more of the paddling aspect of kayak fishing.

Thanks for the link, Allen
