I call this kayak the "Volvo" ..., it doesn't do anything exceptionally well, nor does it do anything exceptionally bad. It does do everything I want in a very controlled, comfortable way. The initial stability is rock solid. Secondary stability is almost as good and very repeatable. Manouverability is more like a 10' while tracking is on a par with the 14 footers. Big cockpit allows for easy entry/exit. Bad points: the seat is mounted by for screws that are pre-destined to fail (easily fixed) and, the trim around the cockpit is shoddy, at best. All in all, a great boat for the money.
