Ignore the 10 at the bottom of this review - it doesn't mean much. Here are some numbers that might be more useful: I am 6'1", 165 lbs, shoe size 10, 12 years paddling experience on Georgia Strait, BC. I've had the Kodiak for a year and put a couple hundred nautical miles on it, mostly day trips but also a 9 day trip.

The Kodiak is a big, fast gear hauler, suitable for going from point A to B. It is not playful, but it handles loads and rough water well. It is rudder dependent in wind. The rudder pegs are the gas-pedal type and work well. The neo + plastic hatch covers are very water-tight and absolutely cavernous: lots of room to swallow gear. The boat rolls fine if you pad out the cockpit with foam.

Conclusion: if you are looking for a big tripping boat to cover long distances under load, the Kodiak should be on your list. If you want such a boat in quality plastic, then the Kodiak should be near the top of your list.
