I bought a 16'6", two seat Pelican used from a friend. He bought the boat new at Sports Authority. I believe that it is a 2005 model. I love the dense hull, which has hardly a scratch after a lot of use, but it is heavy to carry around. I find that it tracks very well and is actually relatively fast, even when out with friends in kayaks. We can cross the inlets in a local, 500 acre lake with ease. I use it only on calm water, but it has been a delight to us. I have had no stability problems with the boat, either. For the price, I would recommend a Pelican to anyone.
