Excellent kayak

Having owned this kayak now for over 2-years I can report that it is an excellent kayak.

The only feature(s) that I would change are in regards to the front Gator Hatch. I am 265lbs and sometimes when paddling in rough waves I get some water in the boat. It is not enough to be a problem but it is a constant thought in my head while making long paddles. If you purchase this kayak be sure to cinch down the gator hatch straps very securely before trekking in rough water for any distance.
