I bought this boat which fits nicely into the back of my 6-1/2 ft pickup bed for $199.00 at Dick's Sporting Goods on sale. I've gone out twice on this kayak. I weigh 155lbs and likely have an additional 10-15lbs of gear on board. I rigged some fishing hardware (complete with rod holder, 2.5lb anchor weight, and a milk crate to hold a cooler and some tackle strapped to the back) on this beauty and had a blast fishing in the Neuse River, NC. Some reviewers called this a tippy boat which initially put me off. BUT, while it definitely feels very tippy, you actually have to work VERY hard to tip it over. In fact I had to lean over to the side nearly at a 90 degree angle before it felt like it was actually going to roll over. Although while I am not a very experienced, I think it tracks well enough. You will get wet butt in this kayak, but that is likely true of any sit-on-top. I put a boat seat pad under my bottom which GREATLY alleviates the wet-butt problem. BTW, because I got this boat cheap I splurged on a decent paddle ($60). I am very happy with my purchase so farů
