Here is a list of the popular fishing sit on top kayaks currently available to buy. This list comprises of the main kayaks available in the market place. I have worked out both metric and imperial measurements on each model so you can easily judge it for itâ€™s suitability to your requirements as a fishing platform. (image by baltimike )
Please note these measurements need to be checked before you buy I will not take responsibility for any errors in my maths and they have been rounded up! I hope this is of some value to somebody out there, I just find it very annoying trying to find all the dimensions to compare fishing kayaks and they are never in one place.
