Submitted: 11-02-2004 by Phillip

I bought a used Alsek in July of this year (after buying a Perception Acadia in May and outgrowing it very quickly), and so far I am really happy with it. I'm 6'3" and 195 lbs. and I find that the boat fits me perfectly. I use it mostly in a resevoir near my house, or in the tidal estuaries and rivers of the Chesapeake Bay. It tracks really well (especially with the skeg), and is relatively quick. I have a hard time keeping up with people in true touring kayaks, but part of that probably has to do with my poor skills (this was my first season of paddling). I found the seat to be pretty uncomfortable, but after outfitting it with yak-pads, it's much improved. I had it out in one foot waves on a recent trip to the outerbanks of NC, and it performed wonderfully.
