Love the Drifter. After testing several other brands I took a chance and bought the Drifter without trying it out. I am convinced that I did the right thing. Maiden voyage was in Texas winds of around 27mph and it met the challenge, tracks better than the others I tried, even without a rudder and moves through the water with ease & plenty of speed.
Love the room too. Even as a large (female) paddler I can stretch out and not feel unstable. So roomy I could probably nap on it! It's low in the water so it's easy to get on and off, even in deep water after a swim. Make sure you get a long paddle due to the yak width. I had to switch from a 230 to a 240. It comes with all the bells & whistles already installed too. Will even hold a small ice chest and dive equipment.
