This is not a kayak built...

This is not a kayak built for speed, but it is built for stability and is great in shallow water. I have taken this kayak out with my 7 year old daughter sitting on the back of it many times and even though she squirms a lot, it always feels very stable. I do have to work to keep up the same speed as faster boats, but I feel like I have an advantage over most boats in the shallows, and I don't get stuck as often on rocks as my partners.

I have heard that this kayak is designed to be able to have a trolling motor mounted on the rear, but I have not tried it yet. It does come with 2 molded rod holders behind the seat, and a large storage area at the front.

I am pleased with this boat for what it is. I have only used it as a recreational kayak at this point, but it is set up well for fishing, and I believe it will serve me well for some light rapids while cruising down the river.
