Just got this monster of a yak a few weeks back, and after rigging up all the bells and whistles I've taken it out a few times. This thing is a monster. I currently weigh around 270lbs, and I was standing up in this thing going 3mph into 15mph winds with almost 2ft chop. Some kayaks cut water, this thing PUNCHES water. The most stable yak I've ever been in. I have mine outfitted with a Minnkota Riptide Powerdrive with IPilot, 55lb thrust and 48in shaft. Quick release mount makes it a breeze to transport. The recess for a tranducer fits the transducer for my Helix 5 with plenty of spare space. Only real issue is the yak power was rigged totally wrong, but I fixed it enough to power the downfinder and trolling motor. Overall a very sturdy kayak, TONS of storage, and a comfortable ride. I know it's very new to the market, why questions feel free to ask!
