I bought an older 17 ft Tyee 4-5 years ago. I like this kayak a lot. Seawards customer service is great, helped me a lot when I retro fitted a new seating system.
The kayak is bomb proof. I have used it on slow rivers and quick oxbow river, now that a challenge, loaded it with 70 lbs of gear and supplies for Isle Royale. Surfed it off my beach on Lake Michigan side slipped it in big waves... great stability, bounced off rocks and trees with little effect to the hull. It is a bit tough to do a self rescue for me but a 2 man rescue is very doable. I handles chop and reflecting waves better when it has a mild load in it.
All in all a great boat.
I would recommend this kayak to medium to larger people, not suited for smaller framed people...
