This is an excellent kayak to paddle. The rudder works well and it helps in windy conditions.

I have the year 2000 model. I don't really think Dagger had yet decided to build a "real" sea kayak, yet. (Do they have one, now?). Anyway, the boat has rocker, so don't expect to go straight without good paddling form. Mine is in glass, and it is 55 pounds (light enough). I'm tired of people talking about the "cheesy" integral rudder (I think Dagger no longer uses these?). It works good in the wind and takes a good beating (this boat can be used in wide, semi-fast rivers - NO whitewater and few strainers, please). Good boat, but I ripped the seat out, kept the backband, and put in CLC's "Creature Comfort Seat." For those of you with lumbar problems, this is the answer. By the way, when WILL Dagger/Perception learn to design a seat?

As a cruising kayak, the Latitude fails on one crucial test--it's not very fast. I found it to be no faster than several British kayaks which have superior handling. Like the other Dagger sea boats, its swede-form hull gives only the illusion of speed. It may theoretically be faster in flat water, but in real conditions, the squirrelly handling (combined with the largely ineffective integral rudder) renders the boat's speed made good average at best. Secondary stability is good, initial stability is lively but comfortable for the heavier boater. The cockpit is a bit snugger than the other Dagger glass boats, but still features the trademark comfort, with a very good seat/backstrap/thigh grip combination. The cockpit has a mysterious ability to be comfy for a wide range of people. A nice boat to sit in, but not really that nice to paddle.
