I paddled the Solstice GT quite a few times while shopping for a boat, in various conditions (Baja and The Puget Sound). The boat tracks well and you can pack a lot of stuff in those hatches. However, the Solstice can be a dog when you try and turn it, especially in choppy/windy conditions but I found this to be beneficial when paddling to that distant aiming point on the far shore! The bungee rudder control is annoying and some times I required the help of a paddling partner to engage or disengage the rudder. For me (165lbs 5'10" male) the seat was uncomfortable over long distances and would I probably replace the seat if I ever purchased a Solstice. Not a bad boat, but not great.
