I started with the Boreal Narwal fiberglass but went with the roto-molded equivalent, the Muktuk for it's superior durability. I have used it on week-long wilderness river camping trips and ocean day trips. It is easy to handle, takes a beating and is very stable. Liked it so much, I bought a second Muktuk to share with a friend.

I loved this boat. I spent a week off the coast of Maine learning to kayak in it and had a wonderful time. One day, I borrowed a friend's Necky Eliza and, although it was much faster, the Muktuk was a better fit. If you are a smaller, novice paddler, this plastic boat is worth a look.
I was able to do self-rescues fairly easily and the boat lent itself to leaned turns.
I am still looking for the "perfect" boat and am trying many fiberglass boats that cost several times what this one does, but it is still in the running.

I bought a Muktuk recently because I have a larger kayak too: Esperanto (duo). The Muktuk is a very good kayak. Very stable, easy to paddle, relatively light and I use it when my wife doesn’t want to come with me. It's a good choice.
