Submitted: 08-18-2013 by SC

I bought my Edge 13 two weeks ago from REI, and I returned it to the store yesterday for a refund. I am not happy with the way it tracks without the skeg down. In shallow water, I couldn't deploy the skeg without damaging it. The boat kept drifting to the right side, plus it was difficult to paddle it straight. I've paddled a Carolina 120 all summer long and it tracks sooo much better. In deeper water, the skeg certainly helped the tracking. But without the skeg down, it paddled sluggishly. If it isn't enjoyable to paddle, then why keep it?

Other than the tracking issue, the boat was nice. I liked the drain plug on the side of the cockpit (very useful). The paddle-park in front of the cockpit was well thought out too. It did weigh a lot and was hard to car top by myself.
