DESIGN STATEMENT:
Whisky16 is for paddlers between 120 to 180 pounds. The keyhole cockpit offers comfortable, controlled thigh contact for a range of leg lengths. Designed for play in flat water, wind waves, surf, tidal currents and rock gardens, the shallow-arch, hard-chine hull offers its quickest outside-edge turns when only minimally edged, when chine support kicks in. The Whisky16 comes into its own when exploring narrow passages and negotiating awkward corners. Its nimble turning is a delight. A full bow and stern, flattish hull, substantial rocker and shallow footprint enable easy sideways control and quick spinning even in foamy environments. Its ample multiday cruising capacity is accessible through four hatches. The Whisky16 offers stable, easy control and fun for almost any level of paddler.
