I just got the sea ghost last week, I have had it on the Llano river and on the lake twice fishing, I'm 6'3" and 275lbs. It handled very very well. Very stable. I love it. Lots of storage. It's a keeper and I will be buying my wife one. And Russia from Cowtown Kayak was awesome, told me all I needed to know about the Sea Ghost. Awesome kayak. It's a "10"!
