I have reviewed the boat before under the name 'Bud' a couple years ago. I stand behind that review. I sold the boat so that it would force me to use my 'real' sea kayak. Bottom line is the sea kayak is less work to paddle, but also less fun. You could beach land the Yuke on rocks, seal launch it off rocks, side surf unto beaches with little thought, and take pictures in big and confusing water. It was a great surf boat.
The Yuke was a better recreational kayak then my current sea kayak and lets face it we use these things for recreation. There is a need for a good sea kayak that has some of the qualities of the Yuke. I wish the Mariner Coaster came in blow molded plastic. The Yukon is great boat if I didn't trip with fast sea kayaks I would still have it.
