Bought a used Ultimate 14.5 last summer, just before the drought hit Texas. Got a little use in fresh water and enjoyed the Yak, but did not get a lot of experience other than one trip to Destin.
Last week took it to Grand Isle, La and fished the marshes hard for four days. Can't say enough good about this Yak. I (67 yo computer worker) was able to go all day in relative comfort. Could keep up with, and sometimes outrun, my 37 yo policeman son in his SOT. Traveled through tides, chop, and very shallow oyster beds with never a problem. When we hit the super calm water needing stealth to avoid spooking the reds, could make the yak move like a ghost.
All in all the Yak did what I wanted. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a comfortable day fishing.
