When I started looking for a light, maneuverable, easy to roll, day trip/play boat. I literally tired out some 30 different kayaks I found the low volume Ice Kap fit my criteria best. Sterling worked with me to insure that the boat truly fit me and my needs. His options on material, bulkhead placement, seat, bracing and colors are leaps and bounds above the competition. Sterling’s small, semi custom kayak shop, really has no competition in the North West. My Ice Kap has proven to be a real performer, over the last year and a half. From overnighters in the San Juans, day trips along Fidalgo, playing in Deception Pass, to osurfing at the coast, it continues to meet my needs. It’s light weight saves my back, on frequent solo loadings and unloadings. I am always looking for the “better” boat, but I have not found on yet to surpass my “blue ice”.
Why should you purchase a Sterling Kayak?

Enjoying an almost Advil-free paddle!
I want to tell you how much I’m enjoying my Ice Kap. It handles so beautifully, turns on a thought and is so comfortable that
I’ve been able to reduce my per-trip Advil consumption to almost nothing.
I’m also surprised at how stable the kayak feels: I’d expected it to be a bit tippy and was amazed to find how solid it feels when I’m not paddling. All in all, it’s a joy to be in…Thank you again for making such a beautiful craft.
