Great boat! I just bought a Carolina from Ocean State Adventures (good place with very knowledgeable staff) in Bristol, RI. I had been paddling a Walden Vision. I very dissatisfied with the Walden tracking ( a lot of one armed paddling) and had to put a 20 lb bag of sand in the aft hole to give me any tracking ability at all. The Carolina tracks like an arrow! On my first two trips I went out into Mt Hope Bay in windy choppy conditions. I never had to paddle more than twice in a row on either side to maintain heading and this was with the rudder raised. It is a very comfortable kayak and it is easy to maintain a good pace even in chop. She even surfed quite nicely when I was going with the wind.
