Wanted a small, quality contructed, light, durable, good gliding, manueverable/responsive, good tracking day tripper instead of taking my longer kayak. Looked at a lot of good small kayaks and chose the Eddyline Merlin Lt. I balked at the price compared to other kayaks of similar length, however the superb construction & inherent characteristics felt with paddling the kayak in my opinion justified the expense. Water tested the boat at the dealer for leakage and the previous hatch/bulkhead issues are resolved. This kayak is worthy of serious consideration.
