    I bought a used Stellar Intrepid last year. I have been very pleased with this boat. I own a Stellar SR surfski which I love so I thought I'd check out the touring boat in their line-up. I am a life long Sea Kayaker so Ive had a lot of experience in a wide range of sea kayaks to compare it to. Nice construction, has a thin core of some kind through-out the boat. My boat is 44lbs which I consider light for a full touring boat with hatches and bulk heads. The weight was one of the things that first attracted me, easy to tote around and load onto the car. Comfortable seat and a great cockpit shape are a bonus. I have not seen another one of these out here in the San Juan Island of WA where I live. There must not be too many of these around. The hatches are good fitting and dry but the material they are made from gets hard in colder temps. They can be difficult to snap down with cold fingers. The little day compartment in front of the paddler is nice but the hatch is not water tight so take care what you put in there. I've had it out in all kinds of conditions at this point and it has no quirks or bad habits. I feel that this is a good thing, if your boat is easy on you then the whole experience is enhanced. The hull is a fairly sophisticated shape and its really well done. It can handle a good touring load and feels great. It has dry ride with enough free-board to load it down. Unloaded for day trips I need the skeg about 1/2 down for easy tracking. Over all this is great design. Five stars from me! Paddle-on Lads

    My 2nd sea kayak, paddled mainly in protected waterways...…. roomy and capable expedition kayak, overnighting with plenty of gear in the large volume hatches. Only have two criticisms 1) cockpit could be a touch longer (being a 6'-0" paddler with long legs) and 2) would prefer a proper footplate rather than the 2 small wide spaced 'Smart-Track' pedals. Otherwise a great looking kayak, on-yeah!
