Great BEGINNER Kayak - at the LAKE

I've owned this about 3 months now. I Like it. I am 5'3", 105 lbs. and older (retired) and I CAN lift this wo/ my husband's assistance (going to the lake on my own is important). I am average fitness. Things you should know: The storage compartment is NOT waterproof. Put pipe insulation around oars to keep water from dripping in. I can easily maneuver it through lilypads and as little as 4-5" of water. It is stable enough that (with caution) I can lay back and sleep if the waters are calm. I deliberately tipped it and it took me two tries, balance-wise, to flip it right-side-up and crawl back in (I was not touching bottom of lake). My back does start to ache after awhile so I also use a seat-pad to sit on and one to lean back against. I could fish off this prob. up to 10 lbs. Turning around to retrieve things from the storage compartment requires balance, but it is possible. Be prepared to tip the 1st time or two. You will need to be prepared to get your feet wet because if the kayak is not completely in water, it rocks back-and-forth when getting in and out. I am easily able to keep up with my husband when we are cruising together (he has a longer and much more expensive kayak) if we aren't "racing". I've never owned an expensive kayak so maybe my ignorance doesn't make me a great reviewer, but I can't think of much this lacks that a more expensive, comparably-sized kayak could offer for my purposes. Take bottled water w/ lid-cup holder not the greatest. You can wear street-clothes-you won't get that wet.

LOVE my kayak!

|

This is a great, lightweight kayak. I use it on the lake by my apartment building and it's easy to carry and easy to maneuver in the water. My only issue was with Sears; they had the kayak stored outside in who knows what sort of conditions. It was completely covered in dirt when I arrived and the sales lady just said "oh, better hose it off" to me. I was loading it into the back of my boyfriend's Jeep and didn't want to put it in wet. I also live in an apartment so I don't have free access to a hose. It did not seem like it was stored properly or with care, which I know can really affect a kayak.

Good little first kayak for someone 5'7"

|

or less and under 150 pounds. Be sure to buy a seat bottom as an after market accessory, or your bottom will get soar if you kayak over an hour at a time. The only real negative that I have experienced thus far is that the molded foot wells could be wider.

I like these, but . . . .

I'm not sure if this is user error or what. I have rent several kayaks, and never had a problem with balance. But, this kayak is really tippy. If anyone has any ideas about ballast or maybe my kayak is defective. Needless to say, I'm disappointed in my kayak.

Great boat for all skill levels and recreational use.

|

This is a great recreational boat. Boat tracks well and for the price is well worth it.
Only reason not 5 stars is no seat bottom, but that is only minor issue if paddling for more than 2 hours. I will add foam to sit on.
No choice of colors.
Would definitely purchase again and would recommend to friends and family.
