Versatility! Whether I'm packing it up for a full day of ocean-kayak fishing, or loading the wife and two dogs for a float down the Colorado, The Deuce Coupe greets me in style, comfort, and relaxation! Any boat by LiquidLogic you can count on for top quality, performance, and superior customer service.
The Deuce is a refreshing new addition to family friendly kayaks! We needed a boat for the family that I could paddle solo and/or with the wife and two kids. I was amazed at the choices out there. Many claimed versatility. The Deuce at 13 feet and three seats won our hearts over the Malibu 2 XL, the Tarpon 130 t, and the Hobie Kona Deluxe and Odyssey. Liquid Logic’s Deuce can be paddled by the kids on the lake or at the beach. If they flip it over, no worries. The Deuce is a sit on top with very large scuppers. Just right the boat and the water drains out those scuppers very fast and the kids can climb in and keep paddling. So… I don’t have to fire up the motor boat and play David Hassleoff to rescue the kids anymore! The capacity is over 450 lbs, so its easy for me at 220lbs to paddle with the wife and one or both of our small kids, or with our son who is 12. Lots of combinations here with the three seating positions and multiple foot wells. There is also a stern gear well for a cooler or for our little one. We tried other boats like the Tarpon 130 T and Malibu 2 XL. A lot of tandem sit on tops do all the same things, they are stable and track (go straight). …and are boring to paddle! It seemed all the family boats were designed in Detroit! Just more of the same….a big rotomoled “ keel” to keep the boat locked into only going straight. We found that those big keels prevent mobility and easy turning ability. We chose the Deuce because it is highly stable, easier to turn, and tracks incredibly well. The Deuce has a drop skeg. I think it’s the only sit on top with a drop skeg. When the skeg is deployed its holds a true line even in the wind. Something no other sit on top can claim. I love the skeg! I also like that when solo paddling it is just so lively. It just paddles like a performance kayak not just the average beach toy, like so many of the other boats in its price range. I wouldn’t even consider buying other sit on tops to take down the river. The Deuce is based on Liquid Logics Remix Whitewater river running series, so the performance is there on moving water as well as flatwater. On Solo days without the kids, I’m running some pretty good class 2 and little class 3 rapids. The river adds a level of adventure to going boating. There are some little waves and eddi lines to paly on that flipped the other sots like the Tarpon and Malibu. When the skeg is down on the lake, I can cruise and keep up with friends in their decked touring boats. This skeg is like magic, it just locks the Deuce into holding a line for crossing the lake. Nobody thought I would be able to keep up with the longer sea kayaks, but in the%

Liquid Logic Coupe Review Detailed walk-through of the LL Coupe
The Liquidlogic Coupe sit on top on a little whitewater. Hey Everybody I had a trip this summer where I paddled with Sarah Bell from Green River Adventures on the Upper Section of the Green river in the Liquidlogic Coupe sit-on-top. We had a great time and I made a little video about it.
Liquidlogic's Deuce Coupe has room for two paddlers and can handle moving water or your local beach. This boat now comes with 2012 graphics, seats and a tag along wheel. Like its solo counterpart, the Coupe, the Deuce Coupe is the most versatile tandem sit-on-top ever produced and the only tandem sit-on-top kayak with a deployable skeg for tracking. With the skeg tucked away, the Deuce Coupe steers effortlessly from the stern and solo seating positions while paddling rivers and back bays, but with the skeg in the down position, the Deuce Coupe tracks straight and true. This versatile sit-on-top is especially family friendly with three seats and plenty of space for additional gear.
