After paddling this boat for a full summer, i have to say.. all in all, it is a nice boat. i am an intermediate kayaker, but have tested and owned a few kayaks. the boat has good speed, one of the most comfortable seating systems for back and leg support, tight hatches, pads to add/remove to fit, and great stability. i have had the boat out in larger waves, and it takes waves and rougher water capably. i was even taken by suprise by a good size wave, and put to the extreme side of the boat, and managed to recover. 2nd stability is great, as initial for hanging out for a few. the only drawback, as someone else mentioned, is the skeg. although the boat seems to track fine in reasonable winds, strong winds will have you doing some correcting. i amnot sure if the skeg is quite long enough. overall a fun comfortable, and nice quality boat.
