Exceptional boat for me. At 6'4" 260 I couldn't ask for more in stability or gear storage.
This needs improvement. First, be suspect of no side handles..the dirty little secret is the front mounting hole's screw space inside the 'yak, is already occupied by the moulded-in nut that holds the foot rest assembly. The paddle holder strap retainers are too small for the size of bungee material, and the paddle pops out by itself, of course, at the most inopportune times. I also had one of the worst customer service experiences from Johnson Outdoors, whereas one rep said nuts, washers, and bolts were better to mount the side handles, and then my discovering the design flaw with the moulded-in nut being in the way of the mounting screw, was told by a different rep that rivets are the "only other mounting option". This a week and a half after sending pictures to them.
Great Kayak for the Big Guys (6 foot 1 / 240lbs). Love mine, just caught a 40 inch Striped Bass on it.
Great kayak for camping and fishing. Tons of room for gear. Get the center hatch and the rudder, and upgrade the seat to get the most out of it. Mild hull slap, but you can stand and fish. Raised seat helps to keep your rear dry.
