This is an exceptional kayak for fishing bays, lakes, rivers, creeks and even streams. Tracks really well and turns easily on class I and II rivers... you just need to know how to paddle! It is very stable and tipping it over is nearly impossible, unless you do it on purpose or a beginner kayaker that likes to try to sit on the side getting in.
I own 3 of these yaks (for 5 years now) and loan to friends often and soon after they go out and buy one for themselves. If you are a fair weather kayaker, only use it for 2 months out of the year, like to swim EVERY time you go kayaking, enjoy getting ALL of your gear soaking wet... then get a SOT.
If you like to be protected from rain, keep everything you have bone dry, use year round and have a superior kayak for the price, then get a Pungo! And learn to plastic weld, with soldering iron, if you like to fish the creeks and small rivers. Patches up gouges great.
