My wife and I bought this boat new this year. We were not greatly experienced kayakers, but sailed for years. The seats are super comfortable. The 145T does lack initial stability due the the rounded hull profile, but it has good secondary stability. This is clearly a flatwater kayak due to the low deck height and large open cockpit. It could be a problem if swamped.
I have added flotation (pool noodles zip tied to pad eyes I added internally fore and aft). The rudder is a great addition, but took some time to install. WS installation instructions need some updating for this model. However tracking with the rudder raised is certainly acceptable. Also, this thing is pretty fast.
