I bought this kayak for my wife yet I have also paddled it as well. I am 6' and 190lbs while my wife is 5'2" 110lbs and we both really fit inside well. The gas peddle type rudder controls are great and since this particular kayak has a very raked bow, its waterline is about a foot and a half shorter than the boats overall 16ft length. The rudder is a pretty frequent necessity but thats ok with us. It has a very solid edge when leaned due to a pronounced chine and this is reassuring. The thermoformed poly material is very nice and shiny yet durable. We really love this kayak. It weighs about 54lbs
The multiple chines create a superb platform for edging and secondary stability. It is ideally suited to a paddler less than 180lbs.
