I know, I know...I showed you this before. But man, I love this kayak. I am delighted that kayaking friend Bruce urged me to get this very model. It fits me the best of any kayak I have paddled. I love the look. I do not love the composite for paddling the stinkwaters of central and northern Illinois--stumpy, rebar-laden man-made cesspools that they are. Boat repair 101 will be in my future, I fear. But the sectional concept is a winner for everything but price (very costly mod).
