15' Plastic model-- The Kayook is a good starter or intermediate sea kayak. It is quite rugged and heavily built. It is nearly bulletproof on rocks. It is very stable. My 100 lb. wife was unable to capsize it in calm water. Although it isn't a fast boat, I am able to move it along fast enough to keep up with other paddlers in $3000 kayaks. Deck rigging is OK, but not outstanding. The steering gear is fairly good. The boat is not hard to climb back into after a wet exit. It is fair in surf and handles reasonably well in rough water. The Kayook weathercocks, but the rudder largely offsets that. It has a sturdy plastic seat, with adjustable back. I tend to slip down toward the cockpit, so I think that seat padding would be very helpful. There is plenty of leg room and a large cockpit opening. This is not a small person boat. There are bow and stern toggle type handles.
