I am a 75 year old paddler, and I love the Yukon Folbot. It is exceptionally stable, which allows me to paddle year round in Virginia. I added a carrying thwart that is removable, so the only problem with a kayak has been solved. I can easily cartop the kayak with the yoke and then remove it when at the water's edge. The hardware I used also accepts a sailing leeboard thwart, so I have eliminated hassle and maximized the utility of the carrying thwart unit. The Yukon tracks well, and with my carbon fiber paddle, I cruise effortlessly. As an old-timer, I have difficulty getting up from the low seat position to disembark, so I added a pull line from the bow to assist me. Works very well. The Yukon is a very good choice for us older paddlers.
