The 140 is the most ergonomically sound kayak I have looked at or paddled. Great hatch placements and generous tankwell make it very user friendly. Tracks fairly well and is almost completely silent in the water.
Back support combined with an inset seat make for a very comfortable ride.
Takes on water that does not drain for paddlers of 200pds. In addition larger paddlers will also notice that this water causes the bow to ride to low resulting in eradic handling. Plugs for the 4 cockpit scuppers resolve both of these problems.
My wife complained of the height of the gunwales inhibiting her paddle stroke.
Overall, however, it is a solid versatile boat with enough speed to cover 10 or more miles comfortably.
