Solid and versatile, I enjoy my Yukon Ex on lakes, rivers and ocean kayaking in NorCal. The rudder is a huge hlp with tracking, but with it up, the boat turns on a dime and can navigate small creeks easily.
The biggest downside involves ocean kayaking. Without an upswept bow, the nose goes under waves and chop. The scariest experience I've had involved having the nose driven into a kelp bed as I was surfing a wave into a cove at Point Lobos. I had about 30 poinds of kelp to remove from eth deck before I could get into sheltered water!
