    Gotta get another!
    Love this so much! It is the favorite of 3 out of 4 family members. Time to replace a wide boat we all hate with another one of these!

    Thanks for the helpful review. You're near my size with more experience, so I'd appreciate your opinion... I'm 5'-8", 135 lbs with long legs. I want a kayak that I can easily lift/handle when I'm alone. I sat in this kayak at the store and the rim of the cockpit was hitting me in the lower side of my leg...I thought this might bother me... Does it keep your legs bent/hitting the cockpit rim? If so, does it bother you? Thanks again for your helpful review.
