If you are looking for a great all-around boat this is it. Not too heavy (I have a standard glass layup), cockpit is easy in and out, and the boat has the same legendary rough water performance NDK/SKUK boats are known for.
The boat tracks great - I have a wire skeg but find I rarely need it. Storage is more than adequate and of ample size for weekend trips. Speed is good for a 16' boat. Handling and maneuvering is outstanding.
Paddle this one and it will be your day to day favorite as it is mine.

A great boat for almost any condition. If you are a larger paddler (I'm 6'3"") this is the boat for you. May not have the capacity for longer trips, but is more than enough for weekend outings. The shorter length (I have an NDK/SKUK Expedition as well) makes it easier to load and move without much loss in speed or handling in rough water.
The construction quality is great and the boat is easily adjusted for leg length to lock yourself in, and the larger cockpit opening makes it easy in and out. (The seat back is, as others have mentioned, not up to the quality of the rest of the boat - the only slight negative I have.)
Easy to keep on line even without the skeg down. The boat paddles easily - perhaps not the fastest boat, but certainly stable and able to absorb a chop without any discomfort. As others have said, this boat excels in confused water.
Paddle others to see for yourself, but you will come back to this one. All in all this one is a 10!
