Will join the crowd here in noting that the Tahiti, at least the K79 HF (green/tan boat) we have, is a nice flatwater boat. It is a great extra boat that we carry with an AE Dragonfly2 to lakes and quiet rivers. Very stable and the seats are easily adjustable and comfortable to hold two under 5'8" or so, or one 6 footer and one under 5'. Not so great for two 6 footers or taller, but what would you expect on a kayak style boat not even 11 feet long?

Also agree that the skeg is an essential extra, and should be standard equipment with the boat, IMO! Our teen and her friends love the thing, and though they like the stealthy green and tan color boat and seats, we can now see that yellow might have been a better choice so we can easily SEE those teens way off in the distance on the lake!

Wish Sevylor would upgrade the valves to something like on the AE Dragonfly line, but the Tahiti is at a different, much lower price point and thus is more basic.

Just take care to loosen the "shoelace stitching" in the aft cover before putting in the skeg - the boat we bought used (but only in the water once) had a small tear in the aft cover where the skeg was forced in place. Easily taken care of with some GE Silicone2! In fact, I agree with the former owner, GE Silicone2 works well for patching this thing if patch kit isn't available. Patch in eve and ready to go next morning.
