The name of this kayak, Big Rig, sums up exactly what it is intended to do and for whom it was intended to do it for - big stability for the many anglers that deserve a model to help them feel comfortable in a smaller watercraft, and even allow them to stand and fish from one! If this kayak was much wider we might have to call it a boat, but our design team kept it at just the right specs to allowing the Big Rig to maintain the performance of a kayak with the stability of a boat. They also crafted the hull for reliable, efficient performance in most kayak fishing situations - lakes, ponds, rivers, inshore saltwater bays or marshes - so no matter where you go the Big Rig is ready to make you feel comfortable there!
