I love the Necky Dolphin. I have had it for 3 years and have paddled it on overnights, as well as scuba dives in Florida, California, Baja, Oregon, and the San Juan Islands. It is very stable for me, never do I think of it as "tippy" even when full of gear. For me it is the perfect "multi-funtional" kayak, and I always keep up with my friends who use fiberglass kayaks. The only thing I do not like about this kayak is the rivets on the inside openings of the dry hulls. When squeezing gear in and out of them, I have had the rivets actually tear my dry bags. Also, I can't really understand why the rivets are there and why they must be so sharp and pointy. I have put duct tape around them, but they are still a problem - anyone have a better idea?
