Chose this kayak for ocean kayaking with some lake kayaking also. It is stable and cuts a nice line through the waves. I use this kayak for long distance rides of the coast of Cape Cod.

I have 2 Esky 15 PVC boats (1 with a rudder, the other with a skeg) that have performed beautifully in both flat water and ocean waves. The only issues we have with the boats are the thigh pads(too thin and not adjustable for different body sizes) and the weight of the boats, but Kevlar was way out of the budget

A great boat. Fits like a...

A great boat. Fits like a glove (I'm 6 ft. 3 in. / 195 lbs.) and very responsive. Confidence inspiring stability. Excellent tracking -- I've yet to deploy the skeg. Very easy to tighten up a turn by employing a bit of edging and very easy and stable on edge.

Great cockpit: comfortable seat and versatile seat-back (use as back band or backrest), twist-lock footpegs with wide footrests, and great thigh braces. Seals spray skirt size 1.7 is a perfect fit with the seat back in the back band position. Only have taken it out on flat water so far, and I can't wait to get it out on some big water and waves.

This is a very versatile...

This is a very versatile kayak made by the Venture trademark of P&H Sea Kayaks of Great Britain. These are kind of difficult to find, but are well worth the effort.

This craft is just short enough to take it on some rivers (though nothing where you'd need to turn on a dime), yet long enough to track straight and fast on still water. Excellent secondary stability. Very comfortable seat (as far as kayak seats go). Ample room for a backpacking tent and a few supplies for overnighting. It has a fairly open cockpit, yet can still be fitted with a skirt for rougher conditions. I am 6' 4" and 190 lbs and this feels perfect and has adjustable foot pegs (can also be fitted with a rudder).

I've taken it on many Ozark rivers and it usually performs well, just not if you have to do a last second correction since it wants to keep tracking straight). This kayak paddles perfectly down the Missouri River or on any open water. If you will be doing only sea kayaking you might look at the longer 17+ foot long cousins made by P&H.
