I bought this kayak new back when it was released and I absolutely love it. The rudder is a must not really for tracking, but for making those turns before you run out of water.
Never had a leak or a problem with the hatch covers, but I do agree you need a good skirt to keep the boat dry.
Too bad they were discontinued so long ago, this one is nearly a perfect 10. I would still choose this boat today IF I was shopping for a new boat.
