     Plenty of room for storage, and handles well. So far I've taken this boat out on smooth water and it glides right along, making good distance. I was able to easily pack three days worth of camping supplies for myself only using the storage inside the boat and no deck space used. The only improvement that is needed is a new seat, beyond that it's a great boat.

     I have owned 3 of these kayaks between 2010 and 2013. They all seem to cave in on the hull within the year. I have owned 8 other Ocean Kayaks in the past 15 years and none of them have this problem. The plastic for the Trident is too soft and deforms too easily. I will never buy another Trident again. The Prowler is a much better kayak. The Trident is heavy and slow and has a deformed oil canning hull. Stay away from it.

     I now have over two full seasons in this kayak and have to say I am very pleased with it. Very stable, paddles easily, tracks well, has lots of storage and great weight capacity. The Mod Pod is a really great feature. I could easily do multi-day trips out of this.

     I bought the Trident 13 for its stability and storage capacity. There is no question in my mind that this SOT design is the way to go for kayak fishing. The stability is excellent; I've fished this kayak on big rivers like the Bighorn and run it through fast water and standing waves with great confidence. It is also fine for fishing "side saddle" and is virtually flip proof on salt water in strong seas. Its hull design makes for excellent tracking on still water.

While it does have excellent storage capacity, the center trunk is rather long and wide and leaves only tight leg room on either side. The pre-tapped holes and gear sets on the trunk lid are not user friendly, for example for receiving Scotti rod holders, etc., or for screwing in other accessories. Fully rigged, the boat weighs in well over 60#, which makes loading and unloading from the vehicle a challenge.

On the whole a fine boat, with a few design improvements it would be a great boat.
