I bought my currituck in late Oct so I did not have time to get use to it before the winter months. I had to be very cautious because the water turned cold and even correctly equipped you do not want to get in deep trouble. As I paddled the kayak I soon realized that this was a perfect boat for me
At 17 feet long and 21.5 inches wide the kayak zips through the water. At a 16 mile lake paddle I was able to paddle at an average speed of 4.0 mph.Not bad for a 56 year old. The boat loves swells and waves. It sometimes seems disappointed when the water is too flat. It is rare for boat wakes to make me change course. The boat is very stable both initially and when moving. The currituck is easy to lean without tipping and you can turn it on a dime.. The skeg is necessary to keep it on course when the wind and tide on at right angles to each other. The seat and backrest have good support and are comfortable. I still use a yak pad for extra paddling due to back problems. The hatches do not leak even a drop. When I first bought this kayak I thought I would have trouble getting into a smaller cockpit than I was use to. Now I feel the cockpit is too big. All in all I am very satisfied with the sea kayak and would recommend anyone looking for a top notch stable, fast and solid kayak to consider purchasing the Currituck.
