This kayak has all the normal and basic kayak features. The cockpit is not overly large, but seems about average. However, the seat is the most unappealing feature. It is ridiculously uncomfortable. I am going to have to buy a pad or use a pillow next time. It does not have a paddle holder, which seems weird on a fishing kayak. However, they are inexpensive and easy to acquire.
This kayak weighs around 48 lbs., about average for this size kayak. It felt very extremely stable on the water, and has channels or "gooves" in the bottom that help with tracking. Great for beginners.
For the price I paid and where I bought it, I figured this would be a crappy kayak. It is not, and I would recommend this (and a seat pad) to anyone who is new to kayaking and wants to start cheap.
We are beginner paddlers, and had no problems with this kayak. If you are looking for a purely recreational boat that is stable and wide, give this one a try. The only drawback is they are a bit heavier at about 45#
