Like this Yak alot

I had bought my first Redfish 3 years ago after trying several sot kayaks. I'm 6'4 and 250#s. Very comfortable and had the legroom that I needed that some of the other yaks in 14' range didn't have.

I yak at local lakes, the ocean at Cape Cod as well rivers. It tracks really nice and for me offered the good balance of speed and stability. Felt real comfortable paddling in wind and waves.

Last summer it developed a small crack on the inside at the edge of the scupper hole. I went to my local Heritage dealer to see if I could get a warranty epoxy fix. Well to my suprise Heritage actually offered me a new kayak (less $50 shipping)!!! Great customer service - total stand outs.

Pros:
Quality company and quality customer support people
comfortable for hours on end
Nice seat
Stay very dry even in big waves
no hull slap which is great for fishing
tracks nice
stability
layout is nice so I could customize it to my needs

Need for improvement:
bow hatch could have been bigger
Would be nice if they offered drive system (like Native or Hobie)
