Seat details: The Mercury GTX is fitted with a comfortable AIR seat. This has a pneumatically adjustable backrest for easy adjusting for comfort. Seat back deflates so the nose section of the kayak slides easily into the cockpit.
Seat covers are made of highly durable and comfortable, honey-comb patterned material in combination with mesh-like fabric laminated and molded over EVA foam.


The Mercury GTX keel style rudder offers greater maneuverability than most rudders and has a blade that retracts to avoid damage. For maintenance, refer to the Point65 Repair Manual

Stowage
is via a large aft oval and a round forward hatch into two accessible watertight compartments for your gear.

Point65 adjustable foot pedals offer a fixed brace for optimal paddling plus a steering component. There are also cup holders.

Comfort and performance - The generous size of the comfy padded cockpit makes for easy entry and exit and fits any paddler. Add the Point 65 Point Storm or Point Ocean spray deck size XL to enjoy a dry ride even in rough conditions.
