One of the best 10 foot sit on top paddling hull designs. Pretty stable, fast enough, and comfortable lawn chair type seat. Jackson is going bigger and heavier with their new boats so hopefully they won't get rid of this type. It is due for an update though.
I have been kayaking for many years and paddle skinny water locally and inshore/offshore on trips to the Gulf. My buddy has had a Cruise 10 for a few years and I got to try it out on an overnight kayak camping trip. What impressed me was the shallow draft the boat has. I was in a Tarpon 100 and a Pescador Pro 100 and this boat out-performed them in the skinny water. The Pescador has a transducer scupper that locks in on rocks. The Tarpon is a fantastic boat but (very) shallow rocks catch the skeg. I specifically boat the Cruise 10 for the river I fish often (The Cahaba). I am able to stand up using the assist strap pretty well and look forward to many years of paddling in this boat.
Another big plus for me - a blank slate to customize however I see fit. I've added three rod holders, a drag chain and a Raymarine fish finder unit.
I would probably go with a Cruise 12 next time based on my size (I'm 5'9" and 155lbs), but this machine proves good things come in small packages.
