This is a great canoe if you need to haul a lot of gear or people. We've had a ball with two adults paddling and two kids with plenty of room to roam in between. I've been through the Allagash with it carried a week worth of provisions and it's taken all the bumps the rocks in Churchill Rapids could through at us with barely a dent to be seen. Great boat for tripping.
Love this boat! I've had my old Kodiak since I bought it used about 5 years ago. It's a fast kayak with loads of room to store gear for extended trips. Great for open ocean, lakes and rivers. The only thing I don't care for are the fore and aft cargo nets so I replaced them with the typical bungee arrangement. These boats are not easy to find in some parts of the U.S. but if you can get you hands on one grab it.
I've paddled a few different boats but this is definitely my go to kayak. Great for day tripping on lakes, ponds, tidal waters or even calm ocean. There is enough storage on board to pack away gear for a couple of nights. It's a great all around boat. I'm 6' and around 230 lbs and it fits well with room to spare.
This is the kayak that my daughter started in. It's a great boat for pre-teens, teens or small adults. It's nothing fancy but is fast and easy to paddle. I would rate it higher but there are no water tight compartments so you really need to add buoyancy bags to keep it safe, especially for inexperienced kayakers.
