Tracks well for the most part, but does tend to wind-cock. It's comfortable. It's heavy. It's slow. But, it's solid if you don't consider the leaking from hatches into the hold (it's fixable). Except for the reasonable price, it's sort of like the Hummer of Kayaks. Needs 240cc paddle at a minimum because of width. Very customizable. Best for inland fishing and bay areas.
