Nice smaller Mirage Drive kayak

I bought a Hobie Mirage Sport after trying a friends larger Mirage model. I needed something that was under 10' to fit in a cargo trailer. I am VERY impressed with the Hobie construction and engineering. Stable and comfortable.

I have used the Sport in mountain lakes, rivers, and the protected coastal water in the Gulf of Mexico - and definitely prefer it over my other brand sit-in (which, fortunately, my wife prefers). It is heavy, though. For accessories, I bought the sail (decent in limited wind conditions) and the Hobie wheels, that make moving it around much easier.
