Bought my Sierra in October; it was my 1st kayak. it's light (poly) at 45 pounds, and a good tracker considering how beamy (28.5") it is. it isn't fast, but turns on a dime. i am upgrading to an america because i want a longer boat----but the huge cockpits of both the sierra and the america are great for 1. stuff, 2. dogs, 3. small kids, and 4. anyone over 250 pounds. a breeze to get in and out of. by the way it IS possible to roll a boat like this, if you need or want to; and the cockpit size makes wet exits and entries much easier than on conventional boats.
