I would endorse what has been said above about the handling of this kayak. It is very sweet indeed and seems to have no vices. 10 out of 10 in this respect.

However, the toggle fixing is a disaster as they are tied to the end recessed deck line fittings. These offer little strength and more importantly are too far inboard for easy rescues or safe handling in surf if you are forced to swim. In these instances the toggles need to be right at the end of the boat so that they are accessible and, when swimming with the boat in surf, allow the boat to rotate without causing the swimmer injury. The lay up is too light to simply drill the ends of the hull and reposition the toggles.

The light lay up is great in most circumstances, but may prove to be just too light for safety in some circumstances.

On balance a 9 out of 10, because of that sweet, vice free handling.
