For me initial and secondary stabilities are high. This boat was very comfortable to just sit in and look at the scenery. Maneuverable, skeg was handy. Very balanced in the wind, didn’t notice any weathercocking. I was paddling about 5 mph at what I would call a quick cruising pace. Understand here I’m not a racer. Very fast for a 15’ kayak. Cockpit was very comfortable.
If you go to San Diego, where Patrick has his shop, its like visiting an old friend. He and his wife are very gracious and he loves to just sit around and talk kayaks. He’s very passionate about his work and very knowledgeable. We had a good time visiting with them.
