A very stable BUT heavy kayak (68 lbs.). Most comfortable seat I've seen in any kayak and it can be removed and used on shore. No real water tight storage. Harder to paddle due to the width and weight. Still not a bad beginner boat.

Picked this kayak up on 6/21/14 and took it out for its maiden voyage the next day. Went to Mountain Island Lake just west of Charlotte, NC. This kayak is big and heavy, yet is easy to paddle and maneuver. I am 6'4" and 270#. There is plenty of room for me and all my gear. The framed seat is very comfortable, and still felt good after 3 1/2 hours of paddling. I have a 240cm paddle, and may go a bit longer. Overall, this is a great kayak for fishing and just paddling around lakes and mild rivers. Will eventually take it the New, Dan, and Yadkin rivers in NC and see how it does. Will report back afterwards.
