I recently purchased a Gulfstream after extensive research for about three months of ready about hull designs,speed,volume and other aspects of kayaks to find the one that best suited my needs as I have outgrown the Kyook that I have been paddling. I tried many British boats because I wanted the day hatch and skeg. Other then the Valley Aquilla the Gulfstream took top honors. It is excellent in rough water(columbia river) and stable enough to shot photos from. It is not on the top of the list for speed, but paddles smoothly and tracks well w/o the skeg. I am waiting for weather break to take it in the ocean which is where it is designed for.
