This is my first kayak

This is my first kayak - I've had it just over a month and am overall delighted with it. I generally get out 3-5 times a week or more for at least a couple of hours & thus far the kayak has behaved very well both in open water even with severe crosswind/swell/chop & of course sublime in the back bay.
It is quite stable although will capsize if you exceed its COG. It can hold a ton of gear which is a good thing when undecided as to whether to fish, free dive, or just paddle.

I'd prefer a few more padeyes & also place to park my paddle on both sides of the boat; easily rectified will be adding both soon. The rodpod is great- easy stowage of rods & assorted tackle for surf entry/exits. Both hatches seal very well; the boat stays dry inside apart from condensation.

As compared to my wife's Tarpon 12 it is several inches less beamy, more nimble & a good bit lighter to carry. She's not the speediest boat in the world but 3 knots is super comfortable to cruise at even in less than optimal conditions.
