     Great boat for bumpy conditions and shorter coastal exploring. Really fun.
    PROS:
  • Light weight (vacuum bagged fiberglass layup)
  • Super maneuverable
  • Super-easy to edge (low initial stability)
  • Comfy cockpit better thigh braces, roomier than low volume boats
  • Surfs nicely, good volume/buoyancy and hard chine
  • New small day hatch easy to attach, big enough
  • Turns out 14'10" is not too short for a "real" sea kayak

    CONS:

  • Valley plastic seat (not comfortable or ergonomic for me)
  • Low initial stability (a pro for some, con for others)
  • Low speed not a good choice for distance paddling
  • Huge rear hatch unnecessary in a play-boat, hard to put on
I put some additional thoughts on a blog here if interested:
