I was very impressed with the moken 14, plenty stable to be in rough water. I also love the center hatch that I can throw all of my go to plastics in. I am a bigger guy at 5'11 275, it holds me well with all my gear. It tracks great without the rudder but a rudder is a bonus to have while drift fishing. over all I love my moken 14. You wont be disappointed when you give any feelfree kayak a try.
The boat tracks well and is fairly fast .. the rear slide tracks are a little too far back to be practical. the front slide mounts are ok but you have to buy the slide mounts as there is no mid ship access to the inside of hull for mounting anything . Im a big guy , 6'5" and 290lbs and the weight capacity is WAY OFF .... me , two rods , two mounts with scotty rocket launchers , fish finder with 8- AA Batteries , two plano boxes , two bottles of water and a PFD should come very close to 100lbs under the 432 lb cap and yet the footwells and rear tank well both held water above the scupper . The boat is fairly heavy but not too bad . The wheel in the keel is nice on solid ground but the boat needs to have a well balanced load or be empty to keep it from tilting. This particular craft convinced me to TRY BEFORE YOU BUY . I feel that my NW Manta 14 is a better boat for me . This was my second kayak purchase from ACK and their service is the best in the business. Had I been able to try before the purchase , I would have passed on the Moken 14 . 2-1/2 Stars for my needs.
I ordered the sun camo. The pictures online doesn't do it justice. This color is pretty sweet. This kayak is pretty quick too. I am very pleased with the speed of the Moken 14. As far as tracking goes. My first trip I did not have a rudder and it tracked great. I was very pleased with the tracking of the Moken 14. Feelfrees formed shape that holds the "Wheel in the Keel" acts like a skeg which helps with tracking. I ordered a rudder the same day I bought the Moken 14 just because I have fished with a rudder for the last 8 years and just prefer it. Don't worry about not having a rudder right away if you can't afford it after spending all your money on the kayak. The Moken 14 is one of the best tracking kayaks straight out of the box. It's very stable too.
About a month ago I received my Moken 14 from Austin kayak. I have not been more pleased by anyour other customer service I have ever used. But besides that the kayak is incredible. I have had it in freshwater and in the ocean, it has more then handled both. Bass fishing calm lake waters is more then easy and it is possible to stend on the platform although you need to get a feel for the balance of the kayak. I have not felt the need to stand up while on the ocean but it still has incredible stability. More then enough storage for poles. Cuts the water well and takes on waves with ease. Had to deal with some rude boaters and their wakes but it caused no problem. I recommend this yak to anyone who wants the ability to fish anywhere from a couple miles of shore to lakes inland. This kayak will handle it.
