I bought my 17 ft. Tempest (plastic) after renting one on Cape Cod two summers ago. The guides there claimed that the plastic Tempest closely mirrors the feel of a glass boat. After adding a Sealine pad to the back band I find the cockpit to be extremely comfortable and it's easy to feel connected to the boat. With the skeg up you can practically spin the kayak and with the skeg down it tracks very well and resists weather cocking. I find it easy to put on edge and don't miss the rudder on my old Cape Lookout. The kayak is wicked fast (despite its 61 pounds), playful and loves the waves. The bulkheads stay dry and when one of the bungees snapped, WS sent me another even though I bought it used (A lifetime warranty!) I could not be happier with this boat.
