This is a decent boat for recreational paddling on fairly calm waters. It's exceptionally stable (easy chair stable). The skeg helps with tracking. Skeg up performance is a function of paddler skill and currents. Personally, I prefer the extra maneuverability of NOT deploying the skeg.

I have a couple of performance kayaks and bought this boat (used) exclusively to take grandchildren and new paddlers out on the water. For that purpose, it meets all my (limited) expectations. Additionally, I paddle sloughs where there is an unfortunate amount of floating debris (boater trash). The large hull and open design of the 140T makes it an awesome 'pick up truck' on the water.

A couple of reviewers have mentioned Pelican's (in)famous foot peg attachment quality. Someone in Canada REALLY should take a hint since this has been a complaint for years across most of their products. On the other hand, a few bucks of stainless fasteners (and maybe some o-rings) resolves the problem and you can enjoy an otherwise nice boat.
