The Blackwater as my second kayak. I use it primarliy on lakes and mild rivers. The large cockpit is very comfortable. I am 6'1", 235 lbs and it allows easy enter/exit. The boat is very stable but creates a small amount of drag in the water. I have related this to the low blunt shaped bow that generates considerable spray over the bow in even mild choppy water, this can be a hassle if you want to stay dry. The retractable skeg does work. It does not create a noticable difference while tracking, but does increase the overall turnabilty and turning radius of the boat. Overall I am very happy with the boat. It seems to a good blend between recreational and touring with great stability, retractable skeg, sealed bulkhead and good storage capacity.
