In comparing this West Marine offering to other SOTs designed to accommodate 2.5 people, this seemed to be identical to the Perception Tribe also manufactured by Confluence, but at a lower price point.
Pros: eight scuppers (trial and error Ocean Kayak small plugs optional) that work well, without keeping the occupants wet, heavy but sturdy and very stable tri-hull supports 550lbs. functional center seat position allows good control as solo paddler, and most can sit cross legged if optional back rest/seat is not used. Good handle locations for portage. Storage: small center screw type compartment, bungee cords front and rear with well on stern.
Cons: heavy, weather cocking, not available from other than from West Marine in CT
A great value SOT that makes for a versatile rec kayak.
