I am 5'11' and tip the scales around 155 pounds. I find that the Alsek is a fun boat to use on river and tight spaces where its high manuverability is key. For the open water, especially with any sort of wind, it does not track that well. The skeg is a must. I find that adding about 100 pounds of ballast helps the boat track and helps increase its speed. Otherwise it sits too high in the water at the whim of the wind. Aft bulkhead is sizeable, durability great and small and light enough to top on my jeep.
