I've been paddling kayaks for over thirty years and was very impressed with my Q700. I did a solo self contained trip of 500 miles on the Missouri River, mostly in Montana. I brought more gear than I needed, because I could! The room in this boat is great, I also carried six gallons of water.
Paddling open water on Fort Peck Lake, and doing point to point crossings, I encountered winds and choppy water from every direction and this boat handled exceptional, predictable and lived up to its legendary speed. I lived out of this boat for 16 days and only carried the bare necessities on the deck; everything else fit below in the hatched compartments. I'm looking forward to more extended trips.
