OK did everything right on this yak: no hull slap, very good tracking and glide, very stable, the front, middle, and rod pod hatches are great for easy storage and stay dry too. It's a much drier ride than any other I listed above and the adjustable foot pegs stay put... not so with the Tarpon 160 and Perception Search. The center carry handles are perfectly centered for balance, has a skid plate on the rear for protection, and the best deck layout of any yak listed.
Took it out on some big whitecaps and it was dry and stable. Took it on a fast Class II river and it rode like a sports car on a track... stable and quick to turn. This one's a keeper for sure.
