A local sporting goods store "finFeather Fur", had an Ocean Kayak "Drifter" in their inventory. I told the salesman about my hesitating to buy a "sit inside" kayak. He suggested I try a "sit on top" kayak there in the store. It was so easy to get on and off of I couldn't believe it.
I have been using my "Drifter" for over five years and have caught fish I never would have been able to approach in any other kind of boat or from shore.
Everyone I have put on it can't believe how stable it is.
