I bought my Sealution xl 6 months ago as my first kayak after a bit of comparative research of the manufacturers spec sheets and the dealer's allowing me to pick his brain extensively during the slow months of late winter. It met all my expectations. Good tracking requires the rudder, at first I thought it was my technique, but after getting a Solstice GT, I realize it is the hull. The seat is quite comfortable for my 6/1" 245# frame. Haven't loaded it up yet, but I'm sure it can handle that as well. Been in a 2 foot swell on Long Island Sound. I can liken it to a good training aircraft, stable enough to instill confidence, but challenging enough to keep a beginner on his toes.
