A good family kayak. It tracks fairly well without the rudder. It moves along much better than I expected for a flat bottom kayak weighing over 70 lbs. Speaking of weight however it is a bear to get on and off of a roof rack and a chore to carry for any distance over 20 ft even with 2 people. I disagree with the negative comments about stability - I've had it in Pacific coastal waters and felt very safe in wind waves and swells (that said I still don't venture out far from land in unprotected waters). With 2 people and the skirt attached it is dry but without the skirt it gets wet inside. I still think its the best of the tandem recreational kayaks I've tried.
