I just bought a Sea Ghost 130 and I love it. I can stand up paddle around and cast my rod. Also I tried getting out and getting back on the kayak. In water over my head. After the third try I did it successfully. I'm 63 yes old 5'9 210 lbs. Very stable and easier to handle in the wind than my Old Towne canoe. I like all the storage too. This thing is lots of fun.
