Submitted: 07-31-2009 by Gerald

I am a novice paddler, 6'3",235 lbs. I bought the NC19 used and had it out 7 times in mirror smooth and 15knots conditions. I find it very stable and solid in tracking. I have not used the hatches for trips but I do have a leak in the rear (around base, not lid seal) - 3M 5200 should fix this. I find the foot area tight with a size 12. I glued some close cell foam to the foot pegs and inserted a foam pad in the heel area. I paddle bare foot this really made it comfortable.

I find it challenging to turn the boat in strong winds when you expose the beam sideways to whitecaps, but this is probably also a rookie issue. It does seem fast. I can catch up with other paddlers easily even if they are a mile ahead (also in sea kayaks not plastic tubs).
