Knowing Joe & his wife from their beginnings in a small industrial garage in the mid 70s. After buying a 13" kayak in 76, buying my glider in 2002.Its much better than any others I have tried , in bays or oceans .I would fish and paddle in San Diego bay, the aircraft carriers passed it would roll - heel to a solid point even in the trough . Like others have written it tracks straight even when driven with hard paddling, off shore it handles weather well .
Its almost a bit too small ( leg room ) for me 6' 6" 230 lb ,still very comfortable after hours in the seat. Its a lot to carry for one guy in the standard glass. I recommend the wheels and spray skirt as a standard for this boat. You can live without a rudder on most inshore water ways.
Its way faster than you can imagine. Lots of storage , at a good price.
