I also have a B523 – Yukatat and as stated in the previous review, it pulls to one side so badly I’ve only had it on the water once and was so disappointed I never took it out again. This boat needs a skeg in the worst way. I also have a IK-116 from Stearns that does have a skeg and I’ve never had any complaints. After a little initial zig-zag when you first start off but, after you have a bit of forward motion, the skeg takes over and you track very well for an inflatable. I was hoping in the Yukatat for boat that was a bit larger and looked more like a “real” kayak. Well, it does look nice. Fully inflated and sitting on the ground passers by ask all kinds of questions. Unfortunately, I have to tell them I’d recommend another boat – any boat.
