Being Kevlar she's relatively light at about 50lbs, and I'm able to lift her to and carry her on my shoulder without difficulty. Plenty of storage, including easily reached space right behind the seat, and I love her deck rigging.
When I bought her I was considering new and used models as much as four times what I paid. If you can find one and she meets your mission requirements, don't hesitate.
I may be rating this kayak a little high, but I guess it's done everything I had hoped and wanted it to. The only draw back was that I ordered a Kevlar boat and Eddyline sent me a Fiberglass one and I needed it to race that weekend so I went ahead and paid for it. Oh well - I've had it now for 14 years and it still looks new and I'm still getting compliments on its looks and speed. Never had problems with water getting in the hatches. I've gone through 6 & 7 ft waves that have crashed over me and filled up the cockpit and hardly a drop in the hatches... One beautiful kayak...
