I have paddled this kayak for almost a year now throughout lakes, rivers, bays, and the ocean. First off, the kayak is very comfortable to paddle. I give the seat a 9 out of 10 for comfort. This coupled great initial stability makes this kayak a great fishing vessel. The speed is ok. I have gone on a trip in Assateauge where my boat was the shortest and the widest. I kept up, but had to paddle a little harder than the rest. Rolling this kayak is fairly easy despite the high backrest. I have had some troubles with the rudder. I probably should have sprayed it off a little better after going into salt water, because it does stick. All in all this is a tough kayak, with good speed, and good stability.
