Purchased this as my second kayak and I absolutely love it! Seat and back is comfortable enough that I haven't really reached a point where my butt hurts. Plenty of room in the cockpit to adjust legs. Very good primary stability but still enough secondary stability to put it on edge to maneuver. Rudder makes it quite easy to track straight in currents or winds and also allows me to power paddle easier. One thing I would change is the foot pedals - they are used to steer the rudder but they can be knocked loose causing you to steer inadvertently. It can also be difficult to get them back into place while paddling if they get pulled out of place.
Overall I would buy several of these if I could!
My first sea/touring kayak. Very durable and also a very heavy roto boat. The rudder is a little finicky and I have to replace the spacer every year. No longer produced it has been very rugged with good capacity. Sadly, the comfy seat is a bit of a problem when doing self rescues as it's a whitewater seat with a high back.
My second kayak and I absolutely love it! I could sit in this boat for hours and still be comfortable. Good primary stability, very easy to paddle in flat water or waves. The rudder is really useful in currents or when you need to power paddle. Plenty of storage also.
I have owned this boat for 4 years now although mine is a native river (same boat) it is the best all around boat I have ever owned. I am a big person and the boat is easy to get in and out of and plenty of room inside. I use it on the rivers and lakes both and it does a good job on both.
