I bought a Blackwater 3 months ago, Iíve used on lakes and misc. rivers in northern Illinois. I find it to be a top shelf kayak, an excellent first kayak. Bulletproof construction, jack of all waters and master of none. Drop skeg gives it wonderful versatility, dramatically changing its characteristics from a nimble whitewater craft to stoic touring kayak. It is slightly sluggish, but the pricepoint makes that tolerable.
