I bought the Pelican SE 100 Storm kayak from Costco for a very good price. It came with a car top carrier, paddle and skirt. I loved the fact that it has a large opening, as I usually bring a dog along with me. Well, tracking in this kayak is quite difficult. This kayak will turn on a dime just by shifting your weight. With very careful paddling, no wind or current etc, tracking is alright, but absolutely impossible with a dog in the boat, even on a perfect day. I called Pelican International and was told that they do not sell a skeg for this model. Unfortunately I will be returning it and purchasing a Dimension Escapade from Canadian Tire. Tried one of these before and it was extremely stable, tracked beautifully and comfortable, even with the mutt in it.
