So I should start with the specs as I have measured them:
Length: 16' 9.5" Beam: 22"
Cockpit: 26.5" x 16"
2 hatches, large openings, hard covers, dry Diolen / Fiberglass Composite
The kayak has significant rocker, but it tracks well nevertheless. There is some weathercocking at higher winds which can be tuned out with the skeg. It is quite stable and turns easily, as you'd expect from the rocker. It is about as speedy as one might guess for its length and rocker.
For me, mostly a day tripping fellow who spends no time in rock gardens, it is a very maneuverable yet swift enough all around boat. I've paddled it in some local races in order to give other paddlers the joy of victory.
