Purchased this kayak used about a week ago. According to serial number appears to be a 2008 model and also says BLEM in front of serial number. I am 65 years old 5'9" and weigh 185. I also own two older double hatch and one newer TW Scupper Pros.
I live on Kauai and primarily use my kayaks for paddling Na Pali coast and camping at Kalalau beach. Just back from a five day camping trip along coast. I love the big tankwell for bringing along a large cooler, very stable in rough seas and tracks well (I do have rudder) The bow area is much smaller than my Scuppers and holds less gear, the hatch seal is terrible and kayak always had 2 to 3 inches of water in it, very poor design. You would think a company with Ocean as it's first name could design a water tight hatch.
This is a decent kayak but I still prefer my old Scupper Pro's
