I bought a Kestrel 140 in TCS yesterday and went out this morning. I could not believe how smooth, and how fast the composite material is!! I have always paddled poly boats (Kestrel 12, perception spectrum, and Prion Seayak). They have been fine boats, but this one is so sweet!! Mine does have a rudder, and I used it only once. It is helpful, but only when really needed. I literally can light this with one arm, and now even enjoy walking farther distances to the put in spots. I have enjoyed other Current Designs boats, and now certainly have fallen in love again with this new boat. It's even a fun color... Caribbean Blue/Turquoise. My wife and daughter especially like the color and gel coat shine!!
