The first thing that strikes you is its Greenland design. Unlike many SOTs, it looks like a classic kayak. However, the higher sides make it a bit harder to self-rescue. The performance lives up to its appearance, as it is very quick for an SOT. It takes chop well and turns okay. Padded handles at the point of balance make it easy to sling around and grab lines are handy. Foot pegs are on an aluminum track. They're easy to adjust and lock solidly. Hatches are easy to use, but are somewhat limited in size, as is stowage. Forward strap padeyes are low and forward of the footpegs, augmenting control via knee lift. All in all, a very enjoyable kayak.
