I have had my Egret for 6 years, and have paddled a full range of waters from multiple sections of the CT River, to the estuaries along the CT coast (Groton and Niantic mostly), to open ocean along the coast of Maine. Great in the rivers and lakes with no rudder, and good most of the time in the ocean without the rudder. When the wind is opposite the tide, a rudder would be helpful, but I'm always able to muscle my way through it without much of a problem. A very TOUGH boat, I use it almost exclusively for fishing and have added rod holders, anchor guides, cleats, etc... Have caugth a 41" bass in this yak and many fluke, bluefish, scup, etc... I highly recommend for the all-around user, but not to those who want a true sea touring kayak.
