I purchased this boat last year as a beginner kayak. The price was right, and the upgrades over the Otter (adjustable foot pegs, paddle holder, and deck rigging) were well worth the few extra bucks. And it came with a half-skirt w/drink holder.
This kayak is very stable. I paddle it on slow moving rivers and small lakes. It felt very stable from the first time I got in it. There is plenty of room to throw a dry bag (or two) behind the seat, strap a bag on the back, and put a small deck bag on the front. The seat is plenty comfortable for a couple of hours on the water, but you do get a little sore after being in it for 9 hours.
To sum it up, if you are looking for an inexpensive kayak with a few upgrades to get out on the water, you can't go wrong with this one!
