I finally became the owner of a Narpa after a lengthy search for a good, durable touring kayak. I wanted to try a Narpa, as it has been used for a good number of big water expeditions with much seccess. Since I paddle in Florida where there are oyster bars and other submerged items that could tear apart a flimsy boat, I needed a durable kayak. The Narpa is very durable, well made, dry, and very easy to become accustomed to. I've been paddling for years in my Scupper Pro for fishing, and the transition to the Narpa was smooth - no surprises. It tracks extremely well and is relatively unaffected by winds. I find that this kayak takes less effort to move the boat and keeps up hull speed easily. Also, the acceleration is good and the glide is superb. The strengths of the Narpa is in light to moderate chop - stable as a rock. In short, I'm extremely pleased with this choice and would certainly get exactly the same boat again. The only improvement I'd like to see would be larger hatches. Necky has a winner with this kayak! RR
