I've had the Manitou 14 for almost a year and have paddled it in protected coastal areas, lakes, and rivers. I've been having a blast with it. Early this year I've been taking it up the Charles river, which, near the source, is quite twisty.
I got this kayak for a couple of reasons:
  1. size: I'm 6'2 with size 13 feet (200lb) this fit me.
  2. Room for skill development in kayaking.
I've been very happy with both.

Pros: Tracks well, relatively stable without being a barge. plenty of storage, very durable. Fast boot, can take moderate waves.
Cons: Skag knob doesn't always stay in position. I've hit my hand on it a couple of times (mentioned in another review), foot pegs could be a little more comfortable (they are small bars, that after a long trip eat into your foot.)

The hatches are really only accessible on land. Anything I want to get to is on the deck. Getting the neoprene covers is not easy either.
