More Liska Info
Track systems on the gunnels and large stern storage area add the functionality lacking in the original Cudas. New, narrow hinging center hatch with molded-in tackle storage and fishfinder battery compartment allow convenient storage without cramping standing area. Molded-in handle on the stern for ease of transport.
Wider hull creates a more stable standing platform than the original Cuda, meaning it is better suited to larger paddlers, beginners, and more gear. Stand and sit with ease – comfortable, padded standing area is standard. Hi-Lo Ergo seat system features hi/lo positioning and track-mounted seat system means infinite trimming fore and aft.
The seat can still easily be removed for use at camp or lounging on the bank, or replacement with an Orion 25 + Handibak. Molded-in-center hatch features two chambers. Front chamber accommodates 2+ Plano cases without cramping standing area. Rear chamber fits cables + fishfinder battery and drains to a single center transducer-ready scupper. Single track on top of cover for mounting accessories. Multiple rod, tackle, and deck storage options.
Padded floor, transducer ready, gear track on either side of seat and on large open stern storage area. Flush mount holders, 2007 RAM fishing rod holder, Ergo seat (maybe with new dry SealLine bag). Paddle holder molded in front hatch. Molded in handle on stern.
The Liska is well-suited to a wide variety of water types and fishing styles, and includes functional versatility for any fishing style. This boat will be ideal for value-minded kayak anglers focused on flat water conditions who want more portability than some of our larger, heavier models. Available Q1 2018.
