Extremely Light Kayak

I was able to use this kayak for 3 trips recently and have to say it was a pleasure to paddle. The kayak is extremely light so portage was not an issue. It weighs like 55lbs or so.

I really liked the rails and it looks like it would fit any of the yakattack rail accessories which makes rigging his kayak easy. But keeps everything clean should you want to fly fish from it.

Overall it was a great kayak, I just wish someone could solve the speed and stability issue.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Very light clean layout
