I have the Carolina EXP W/Rudder. I love this boat! It does everything they say it will. I am 6'1", 225 pounds, but easily fit into the boat. I find the seat very comfortable too. All the compartments have stayed 100% dry, even the cockpit with only a nylon spray skirt. I have not noticed any problem with it's tracking in the wind, even without using the rudder, nor does my boat plow through the water as noted by other paddlers. I live on Lake Tapps in Washington State, and paddle nearly everyday. I haven't taken it out on the Puget Sound yet, but plan to in the near future. I expect the Carolina will perform as good in the Sound as it does on the lake. I'm looking forward to many years of paddling in this boat!
