After much research into my needs as a sea kayaker, I recently purchased a used, Kevlar Currituck. My needs were determined after a number of trips in heavy winds with predominantly male groups of kayakers. (I am an average-sized female.)
Primarily I needed a boat that tracked well in winds and required minimal effort to keep at cruising speed. I interpreted this to mean a longer, lower volume boat than what I had been paddling. I felt that the longest boat that I could store was 17', more or less.
I also wanted a boat with rubber hatch covers weighing no more than 50 lbs with a skeg. I paddled a few boats that seemed to fit these requirements.
The Currituck has not disappointed me. It has moderate primary and secondary stability. It tracks well enough without the skeg that I can devote most of my energy to forward motion, and with the skeg it tracks like a train. However, it is surprisingly maneuverable without having to put it very far up on edge.
It appears to cut through waves more easily than most other boats. When we hit rougher water, I quickly catch up to paddlers who were pulling away from me in the flatter stuff. The ride is smooth and feels secure.
The VCP hatches are dry, and I really appreciate the larger, oval front hatch. The seat is very comfortable for me, and the curved, padded thigh braces are properly located for someone my height (5'5" on the leggy side).
The only cons that I can find are: difficulty in paddling the boat backwards without turning, and a lot more wasted space between the seat and the bulkhead of the day hatch than I would like.
