This is a good basic boat. It does a lot of things well. It can keep up with most 18' touring kayaks, and has good stability. Slight weather cocking, but responds well to an occasional corrective stroke. A little extra weight in the aft hatch will improve tracking.
The sliding foot rest is very comfortable and the keyhole cockpit allows for varied leg positions. The slanted fore deck is great for vertical paddling, and it sheds water rapidly. If you like wood and good speed this boat is a good bet.
