57 lbs :smt001

Is that the bare weight without seat, or as pictured?

My brother in law thinks this is the boat he wants. He's demoed it once out of HMB. Everything started off fine until he turned to talk to someone when he quickly lost his balance and quickly went for a swim.  He still thinks it's the boat for him... Just wants to add some outriggers.  Any thoughts?

I'm the brother-in-law.  I traded the Cuda Lt for a Kraken.  Much better for my needs.  Lt is too difficult to do any modifications.  Maybe future model will be more suited for fishing.

I gave one some pretty serious consideration at one point but ended up going with the eddyline carribean 14. I don't remember a lot about the lt but I believe it had a lot of plastic rivets and stuff where as the eddyline has stainless steel hardware and seemed to be a much better quality product overall.

There were some things it liked about the cuda as far as features. I believe the cuda had a nice hatch system/center console but the eddyline I got has a mod pod and I am still considering cutting it to make it an open hatch setup like a trident. I believe it also had a pretty nice seat.  One thing I did notice about the cuda LT was some pretty serious oil canning on the hull which maybe was from improper storage but I would have thought the dealer would have known better.

Any kayak that is lighter is better in my opinion though. I'm wanting for the eddyline to make a c135 with some pedal system then I may be all done buying kayaks....
