Rated 5 out of 5 by kingmt01 Good Boat
Only reason for low value is I actually bought the Icon which is the same kayak minus the $3 cleat & $10 hatch behind the seat for $399. Took it out yesterday & the water was a bit choppy. It tracks very well, easy to paddle, has decent speed(first time that I could move faster then the kids & they didn't run off & leave me in my slow kayak), It has tons of room(I had all my poles, cooler, gear, & so on with one trip including my 5 year old daughter seating at my nees & another trip my 2 year old taking a nap fully laying down between my legs & the whole time I was in great comfort), very stable, & looks good. The draw backs are that it needs skimmer plugs, shouldn't have skimmer holes under the seat but probably still needs the support there, very slow turning, it seems slow while your paddling but I was moving faster then my kids that always left me setting in my old one so must be deceiving.
I really like this boat.
If you don't plug the holes under the seat your butt WILL be wet.
