Bought my ocean kayak Caper and took it out for the first time recently and had a beautiful experience. the kayak is a little lower in the water and wider than my girlfriend's O.K. Scrambler(about 6 inches wider). the wider beam obviously makes it a more stable platform and less affected by the wind. i do have to say, i noticed that her kayak was faster than mine, but i don't mind giving up a little speed for stability. in fact, when i jumped into her kayak to compare the differences, i tipped over immediately! mine also tracked better in high winds. all in all, they are both great kayaks, and we couldn't be happier.
