This is a very nice kayak. I do not feel qualified to go into a technical review of this kayak, since I am new to the sport, but it seems to track well and is easy to maneuver. I did not have a single issue with water entering the hatches, either from the retractable skeg area or from the hatch covers. I was told to use a non-petroleum-based lubricant called '303' on the hatch covers to keep them pliable and tight-fitting. I was also told the hatch covers had recently been redesigned and upgraded. These hatch covers have a center gray plastic/rubber that is more dense than the rubber that mounts over the openings. Maybe that makes a difference. Overall, I would give this kayak a favorable rating.
