I was under the impression that a kayak is
supposed to fit you and react to your body
movements from toes to head.
Quite similar to a canoe with a saddle to kneel
upon and use your body to control maneuverability.
A big-flat-floating-platform defeats that concept
of paddling with any skill, diluting the sport.
I call them Fishing Platforms - not kayaks.
