I've rented a lot of old town rec' kayaks, but I just bought my first kayak, a Perception Airalite Caroline 14.5....it's GRRREAT...easy to car top on my outback with Malone Super J kayak racks....it feels tippy at first, and I went over only once this year, when I first tried climbing in...it's stable, and VERY fast. If you have qualms about airalite, get over them....most kayaks will be made of this material in the future, albeit they will use different names for it. The airalite hatch covers are flush, covering neoprene covers, which keep most water out...I haven't rolled it yet, but I'm sure that will happen soon. Great boat, the girlfriend will be getting hers soon!
