Dimensions and Stats
The key stats for the Lifetime Tamarack Sit-on-Top Kayak are listed below:
Length: 10 ft
Width: 2.5 ft/ 31 inches
Weight: 52 lbs
Capacity: 275 lbs
This is another simple, no-frills sit-on-top kayak is an excellent choice for the budget-conscience angler who just want to have something simple that gets them to new fishing spots.
With a shorter length of 10 ft, this kayak is extremely zippy in the waters and highly maneuverable. This makes it an excellent choice for rivers with more obstacles in the way. This kayak tracks well despite its dimensions. This kayak isn’t a speed machine though, but it’s not a deal breaker as you probably don’t need too much speed. At 52lbs, this kayak is very light and can be easily transported by a single person and secured to the roof of a car.
This kayak carries 2 6-inch storage compartments at the centre and stern of the kayak, with additional storage areas at the bow and stern. One of the storage compartments is positioned between the kayaker’s legs that is easily accessible for additional storage beneath the deck. The kayak comes with 2 rod holders behind the paddler and holders for your paddles.
This kayak comes with adjustable seats and padded seat back for comfort. There are some concerns about the foot rest being molded-in and thus are not adjustable for people whose feet are in between the 2 recesses.

This kayak is great for starters or anglers on a budget and they’re easy to transport around to explore more fishing areas.
