UH-FK184
MSRP ($):
897.00
Length (ft):
9

At only 9'2”, the UH-FK184 is the shortest kayak in Brooklyn Kayak Company’s fishing range, but don’t let its size fool you, it still has plenty to offer. This compact sit on top kayak is designed for solo anglers and weights in at 45 lbs when empty and can safely carry up to 250 lbs.

If you are worried that you won’t be able to take along your full set of rods with the FK184 you can put those fears to rest as it features no less than five rod holders. Four of these are flush mounted, while the fifth one is an articulating fishing rod holder. Having so many rod holders is very handy, both for having multiple lines in the water as well as for storage. To ensure you don’t lose your paddle while reeling in a catch, the FK184 has secure paddle parks with elastic bungee cords to prevent the paddle from slipping out.

Thanks to the width of the FK184 it enables you to stand up and fish, provided the water isn’t too rough, but bear in mind that there is no casting platform. You’ll want to spend most of your time in the seat, though, as it is comfortable enough even on long fishing trips. Despite being a shorter kayak, the FK184 also has plenty of legroom and has a surprising amount of storage space as well. For larger items, such as a cooler, tackle box or other fishing gear, there is a hollowed-out cargo area in the back. The bungee straps in the cargo section ensures that your gear doesn’t accidentally end up in the water. Two waterproof hatches take care of other smaller items that you don’t want to get wet. Whether it is your keys, wallet, phone or even some snacks, these can all be safely tucked away in the hatches.

Thanks to the light weight of the FK184, as well as its four carrying handles, this kayak can easily be moved where it needs to go by a single adult. The design of its hull also ensures that it has good tracking and turning it isn’t a chore either, so control remains responsive. Add to this the stability and you are looking at a great solo fishing kayak that won’t take up too much space or cause too much damage to your bank balance.
