Pros: The kayak is very fast.
- The V bottom made the boat very "tippy" and wasn't very stable. While i did get used to it, it's still not as stable as many other kayaks.
- Doesn't track, my girlfriend has a heck of a time trying to keep it straight, like others have said, a rudder would definitely solve this part. I was able to track it but i found that if you're not paddling hard, it won't track at slower speeds.
Overall, we just didn't like it. Maybe for someone who is looking for a work out...
I have done many 3 night camp outs on Puget Sound and a 6 day down Lake Chelan where we had 20-30 knots of wind. That was a little crazy but she never capsized in very rough 2-3 foot following seas. There is a lot of storage under and behind the seat which almost gives the day hatch advantage. All in all a great boat for the money. Seda is the best for low cost solid fiberglass kayaks. A great boat for anyone under about 175# that wants a stable, shorter, and easy to handle kayak. Mine has no rudder which takes a little practice, but is fine.
