My first sea kayak and heaven to paddle. I'm 6'2", 240 lbs. and couldn't find an enclosed cockpit model that fit me. The new Expediton LP is an open cockpit, self-bailing model (not to be confused with sit-on-top surf boards)with a 300 lb. load capacity that is very comfortable for me. Great handling, quite stable, and well-made. I'm rating it an 8, not a 10, simply because I'm a sea kayak newbie. Whatever the number, it's a great boat.
