Got the Castaway 116 DLX, took it out, tracking is still a little off. No problems with front hatch sealing or tightening enough to be water proof. I am 6.2 235lbs and my butt stayed dry the entire trip... until I tried to get out at the landing. I was able to draft much shallower places than the Ocean Kayak following me. He kept getting stuck. Ditch the short knuckle busting free paddle, it is crap. Overall, my hull stayed dry, not a drop inside. Was very comfortable if I sat in a proper paddling position, and was much faster than other yaks out that day. Very happy with my cheap kayak.
