I've had the Pelican Castaway for 6 years now and am very happy. I fish mostly rivers with lots of rocks and shallows many times each year. The kayak has survived all the collisions. Also open lake water. Tracks reasonably with experience, I found it was mostly me that wasn't straight lol. Not the fastest kayak but quite stable. Turns well, have an anchor trolley. The rear hatch is totally accessible, you do have to reach behind you and need to master the maneuver. I can also reach my cooler in the rear bungeed area. Great buy for the money.
