Very stable durable kayak

I bought one of these (the Lifetime Lancer model) in July when we had a hot spell in the Seattle area, specifically Whidbey Island. I bought my first one at Walmart for $188, couldn't go wrong. Even in rough water it inspires confidence. I then bought a second one. Modifications included water tight cases for my phone and keys/wallet/etc and deck hatches for the bow. I then bought a 3rd at Cabelas for $249, this time an Emotion Guster. They've basically the same with the exception of the adjustable foot rests and seat back which is padded. Great stable super rigid thick walled kaytak, thicker than the Sun Dolphin Aruba and Pelican Trailblazers which are thinner, and you can feel it. Not light at 48 lbs but the thick sturdy hull and deck give me confidence. SUPER STABLE!!! Adding deck hatches to the rear storage and grab handles on the port and starboard sides of the cockpit to aid in getting in and out, carrying alone, or worst case to get back in in case of being capsized. I highly recommend this stout little Kayak!! Great job Emotion/Lifetime!
