When I took the plunge on purchasing a new fishing rig the question was paddle or pedal? Since I am an avid bike rider, I chose paddle. I was looking for a big water great paddling kayak suitable for a big guy and the Kraken met all my needs. Paddles great and tracks true. It has bee a very stable platform for fishing and with a Dragonfly fish finder, has been a fishing machine.
It's a big boat... With all the challenges that come with big. Harder to cartop, heavier to drag across the beach, etc... Smaller folks should go for the 13.5. However out on the water, the size just melts away. If you like to fish and paddle, take a look at this boat.
