I've had my Blackwater 12.5 for about 10 months now and absolutely love it. It is my third kayak and it suits my needs on lakes and rivers. It is well suited for overnight trips unless you pack everything including the sink. If you want to do that, get a houseboat. Although it is not the fastest kayak around, it is comfortable and tracks well, even without the skeg down. I really don't even use the skeg that much. Proper paddling skills make it track just as if the skeg was down. The only thing that I would change if I could would be to make it a little faster by carving out some of the bulk under the nose area. It does push some water, but not like the smaller versions of the blackwater.
