I'm about 230#, 6'-1". This is my go to boat. I have 3 touring sea kayaks, this is the one I use the most. It is the most versatile: durable, fits well, and rolls easily although it has excellent stability so rolling is not really an issue. If you find yourself capsizing a lot, you need to work on your bracing strokes.

This boat will hold enough gear for a 3-4 day trip, although you need to have a backpacker mentality. It's not as fast as some other boats in its class such as the Valley Nordkapp RM, or Necky Chatham 17 but I find this boat to be really good all around.

Suggestion: If you're an REI member, wait till their spring on fall sale, you may be able to get a 20% discount (I think this applies to boats but not exactly sure).

I give the rating a 9 because it's a little slow.
