I have used my Cetus on the Great Lakes for the past three years in many different conditions and have confidence in the boat. It is amazingly stable, pretty fast, turns easily, holds tons of gear and is comfortable. In stiff following winds and 3 foot waves the skeg allows for good control of the boat and I have not had any major issues with weathercocking or broaching.
I often receive compliments on how the boat looks. The quality of the finish and fittings is very good and everything still is in good shape after 3 years of hard use.
I bought the Cetus after months of research and trying several other kayaks. After three seasons I feel that I got what I paid for: a high quality sea kayak that does what it was designed to do.
