Have used Orca 16 on the sea many times since buying it. Good for larger paddlers as plenty of room. I am very pleased with it and it seems to cope with fairly steep waves. Surprised at other comments on rudder foot pedal locks and adjusters as it gives two options - normal pedal operated system for rudder or locked for more use of paddle strokes for boat control - very maneuverable for this size of kayak. Also with a bit of practice in the locked position you can also use the rudder as a pseudo skeg. Yes it is a bit tippy at first but handles better with weight in it (i.e. large person and fully loaded).
