    the negative first: its a bit heavy. that said i couldnt be happier with this boat! I use it primarily in the bay and coastal waters of San Diego and it is very stable, fast and comfortable. great value for the money. spend a little extra on a nice paddle (you get what you pay for)and enjoy your boating!

    Decent boats overall. The manufacturer's 2nd issues on the two I ordered were minimal... minor wavers and edge finish issues on both. [...] The best add for these specific boats is the SmartTrack Rudder system, as the stock rudder system that was offered with these is fairly unimpressive. They track well enough with a bit of judicious loading and a more powerful/skilled paddler... though you'll eventually want a rudder due to the very flat hull contour from midships aft. Best of luck

    I'm very happy with mine. Good in lakes, wide rivers, or the bay. Really nice with a rudder in wind or strong tide. I like the fact is is drier than other sit-on-tops. I had no problems "pimping it out" with electronics, however, not easy to mount stern light for night fishing. Also, drain plug would be better on the side than the stern, especially with rudder.
    • Best Uses: Good for fishing
    • Cons: Stern drain poor place
    • Describe Yourself: Recreational
    • Pros: Very dry tracks well

About Perception

Perception shapes the future of kayaks, one great boat at a time. Passion has always been the driving force at Perception kayaks - a passion for paddling kayaks on every type of water; a passion for touring, fishing and whitewater kayak designs; and a passion for producing only exceptional products. In the '70s, Perception pioneered the first composite (plastic) kayaks. Since then, Perception's kayaks have led the industry with innovations like rotomolded hulls and Sonoma and Airalite technologies, which have opened the sport to a broader range of paddlers and fishermen. Although Perception kayaks began almost 30 years ago with just a few passionate kayak enthusiasts wanting to produce a better boat, today that same passion drives Perception kayaks to produce the best boats available and has made the brand one of the world's leading touring and whitewater kayak manufacturers.
