We've two Rob Roy (Bell), a 15 and 12, each kevlar. Early-on we canoe tripped Boundary Waters. Now inland lakes and Harbor Springs on Lake Michigan are favorites. A folding cart run to 'our' small sandy beach is ideal. In calf-deep water I sit right down in the large seat while facing shore off starboard side, then swing my legs around. No boat straddle. Exit is the reverse. Deck swell and cockpit-comb combine to keep water out during this exit.
We immediately retro fit a large factory plastic padded seat to the 12 (15 came with one). Lots of back support takes tension out and puts extra drive into double blade paddling from the seated position.
These craft build confidence and do good work over a broad spectrum of water conditions (well outside of rolling). We enjoy paddling in good conditions, often early morning or late afternoon. These kayaks travel well on our little trailex, each in a protective extra-wide kayak covers.
We have never regretted our choice of these kayaks for ready to go kayaking in lots of settings. These are go-to boats. We also own Klepper double, Wenonah Sea Otter, and Hornbeck 10. All are great boats for different purposes.
