Just bought a used 12 ft. "Mainstream, Patriot" from an individual in Oklahoma City, and took it out on Ft. Gibson lake. The yak handled well and was extremely stable. Tracking wasn't as straight as I would have wanted, but I think that was my technique more than the Kayak. I'm new to the Recreation of Kayaking, but in my thrust for the hobby, sat in many a kayak, trying to find a good fit.
This Yak is comfortable and roomy, without being too wide. The Seat was comfortable and the bulkhead didn't leak a drop. This particular kayak came with a spray skirt and I would highly recommend using one since the cockpit is so large. All in all, I am very satisfied with this kayak.
