This boat has a comfortable feel to it. The length gives an incredibly calm unhurried impression even when the boat is moving at top speed. The beam of 28.5" provides room for cargo and gives a stability that makes kayaking in any weather comfortable. Moderate flare above the waterline will increase the stability as the boat heels. Two water tight compartments with access only by deck hatches provide enough flotation to keep the boat afloat in the event of a capsize. 

Is this the right boat for you?
