Just about perfect!

I have a 2014 and 2015 Outback, setup a little different, and the 2014 has a small seat towards the stern for my five year old daughter.

I fish in the NY/Raritan Harbor, which like the Chesapeake gets rougher than the ocean. And inland saltwater rivers. I use to own a Ocean Kayak that was fine, but nothing to compare to the Outbacks; better stability, more comfortable, better layout stable.

I think my next yak will be a 13' revolution; little bit faster and easier to launch from the beach. But, that will be a couple of years. I love both of my yaks, and wouldn't go back to paddle.
