Comments about West Marine Saba 14.0 Sit-Inside Tandem Kayak, Red/Yellow:

This is the yak-anoe of my dreams. You can paddle it like a kayak or a canoe, pole it or scull it. It's very much like the traditional guide boat or duck punt. It's cockpit is roomy like a sit-atop, but dry, thanks to the cockpit coaming and optional skirt. The adjustable center seat and 3 sets of foot pegs makes it a snap to set the boat up for single or tandem paddlers. The seat backs fold down, too, reducing the problems of sunburning the fabric on the padded (!) seats. This is one great boat for the price. So much so that, after trying mine, friends went out and bought one too.

Comments about West Marine Saba 14.0 Sit-Inside Tandem Kayak, Red/Yellow:

Took a bit to get used to paddling with a partner but got good at it on the maiden voyages return trip. Enough extra room for small child or medium to large dog( assuming they are of a docile nature)

Service and delivery comments:

Excellent staff help! Amherst store. (Ordered online then picked up)

Comments about West Marine Saba 14.0 Sit-Inside Tandem Kayak, Red/Yellow:

Is a great boat for a family. For those that remember the Kiwee is just like it but bigger, more space inside plus dry compartment, seat for a kid that can put in front or rear. Good for flat, and easy to move, one person is able to move it so the other can play, fish, or handle the kid. Now out off water is on the heavy side so having a trailer or low pickup help. For the knowledge the longer the better speed in water but current will affect you, once again stable and light paddling, I being paddling for long time and this is great for go out with your partner, girlfriend, wife, kids, dog. If going to invest in something to enjoy with family this is it...

Comments about West Marine Saba 14.0 Sit-Inside Tandem Kayak, Red/Yellow:

Great Kayak. Perfect for families or two people with plenty of space. Portable kid sit in middle is nice. If you want to take a child you can, if not extra space for storage or fishing gear. 3 person usage is not out of the question and nice compared to other models. Use it consistently on the intercostal waterways of Florida. Seats with back are very comfortable. Can adjust foot positions to meet your needs. Awesome price as well. LB capacity is better than other kayaks with 650lb capacity. We use it for both recreation and fishing. Only downside is a little on the heavy side to move around. Very stable as well even with some minor waves. If you are looking for a kayak with a lot of space and don't want to spend $ on a boat, this is a little gem for our Florida home.

        Comments about West Marine Saba 14.0 Sit-Inside Tandem Kayak, Red/Yellow:

        This is my first kayak and I am very happy. We had it shipped to the store to avoid expensive shipping. We used the kayak at a MD state park lake and it was great. Very stable, easy to get in and out, very visible, with plenty of room for 2 paddlers. I am 6'3" and could completely stretch my legs, as could my shorter wife. It was easy to paddle with pretty good tracking. At 80 pounds it is not light and we took it with our utility trailer. Plan to buy a roof rack, but it will be heavy to lift on the roof. Overall a solid value.
