     I purchased my Pelican Castaway a little under 1 year ago. It was on a hot deal sale at academy for $200.00 and I was looking for an inexpensive way to try kayaking. I have really enjoyed this kayak and it was a great way for me to find out that I love kayaking.

I have used it on ponds and slow moving rivers. It handles well for what I do with it. I haven't done much fishing out of it, and have since bought a larger kayak that I fish out of.

The only complaint I have about this kayak is that there are not any dry storage hatches. It is stable, but I have never tried to stand up in it. It is also light weight (40-50lbs I think) and easy for me to load on my SUV.

     Purchasing the Pelican Castaway 100 (10 feet) late in the 2013 season allowed for only six trips on Tennessee's roaring river. The Castaway is a fishing yak and includes 3 rod holders, one straddle and two built in. I have yet to wet a line with my Castaway, using it for my summertime "float and drink a few beers boat". the boat has been excellent for this endeavor. Stability, tracking, and hull quality are all excellent. The Native Watercraft company sells a fish storage/cooler bag that stores 3 six-packs. at 42 pounds the boat is easy for most to carry. Negatives include the lack of dry hatches and a shortage of tie-downs which is easily solved with padeyes from Walmart. For the suggested retail of $349, this may be the buy for fishing (oops, beer-drinking) kayaks.

     Had Castaway for few months; my first yak. Took a little getting used to (balance), but tracks well... would set up bungee deck, stern, different maybe instead of terminal loops use hook ends (work better for me). I added 2 hatches and is a work in progress.

Overall very happy with purchase, just wish recent weather would have co-operated more so could use more.
