I have paddled this kayak for 20 years and I love it as much today as the day I bought it. The Drifter is very stable and yet easy to paddle. I am a big guy and it plenty wide for me. The cargo area is extensive. You can't beat it.
We borrowed a Tarpon for my wife to use and never returned it (we did pay the guy for it though). She loves it and we have had several try it and they love it also. We did have to replace the foot braces but that is the only problem we have had.
