The one downer though is that it does weathercock noticeably, in comparison to say the Tarpon 120 and OK Prowler 13, and so can be an effort to control in side on wind/current/tides. It's possible to get a rudder which would help, but I hate rudders with having knee problems (I've a skeg on my longer sit in sea kayak). However it much lighter than both the above kayaks, and fairly easy to load onto the roof rack.
Storage is good, with the front hatch being easy access, but also secure and doesn't leak unlike the Tarpon 120. I'd considered the Angler version, but cuts down the storage under the lid. Rear tank as decent storage and comfortably store a trolley.
Overall I'd say 8 out of 10, I think a better designed hull would probably sort the weather cocking, as it's a fairly short boat to be severely effected by this.
The Tetra is a massive leap in efficiency and speed over the $180 Apex. It carries my 200 lbs. with ease and tracks true. The Apex would wag its tail on every stroke of the paddle and it is obvious now it was pushing more water than gliding thru it.
I've added a few Scotty flush mounts and can use fishing rod holders or my battery powered stern light in any of them. The storage is awesome, I use the rear deck for bait cooler and a food cooler and have yet to need the locking bow hatch.
I'm glad I started with a cheaper boat before investing in the Tetra. It helped me appreciate the differences and they shine each time I use this boat.
It had the standard Ocean Kayak seat, which is good for recreational use -- then again, that's what this boat is designed for. The tank well in the back was roomy enough for a cooler, and you could adapt this for fishing purposes fairly easily.
Good all around kayak.
