Pelican Castaway 116

The good:
The Castaway 116 is light enough to load in the back of a van or on top of a car by yourself.
The rod holders will securely hold rods for trolling.
Cheap price.

The bad:
Front hatch seal does nothing to stop water from getting inside the hull, as well as being so far forward that it is all but inaccessible while on the water.
The kayak sits too low in the water, allowing waves to come over the sides.
The seat is not comfortable for long days on the water, and allows water into the seating area.

I'd highly recommend spending a little more money on a good brand of kayak before purchasing one.
