I like the way it handles

I have a 1999 Khaya Jeaga sea kayak (16' fiberglass) that I've had several years. I like the way it handles. Am not really an open water paddler, Use it on lakes, in the FL Keys, intra-coastal. I tried several boats at a regional symposium and decided to buy it because it was light weight, seemed to track well w/o rudder, and was speedy. Not sure it's a great boat for serious open water based on old reviews. The back band and seating are so-so. I removed the backhand and improvise with a removable backrest.
