I've had my Tsunami 135 for 6 weeks and I love it! Light enough that I can load by myself (5'6" woman, 60 years young), and it has just about everything I need for day or short weekend trips. Very comfortable and responsive. Handles like a charm in both calm and choppy water, and served me well on a recent open water trip. I have a rudder, but only use it when I absolutely need to do so; the boat tracks really well, and has no trouble keeping up with longer touring boats. I have not regretted this purchase one bit.
