  I haven't a lot of experience

with other boats, but I have tried the Zydeco, and it was a cow.

My own boat is a Perception Carolina 14, and my mother had rented a 11 foot Zydeco, and it was very slow, massively prone to weathercocking, and it was no more maneuverable than my boat.

As I mentioned, I haven't tried a lot of kayaks, but I have been very happy with the Carolina 14 as an all-rounder. I'm starting to think about longer and narrower since I spend a lot of time in open water, but it's hard to imagine a better go-to boat than the one I've got.
