kayak arrived several days after date only after i finally tracked it down "at the warehouse". don't know when the sub contracted company was planning on delivering it. ABF, orginal delivery company, very helpful in tracking down location of kayak from sub contracted company.
kayak arrived with bubble wrap torn off and lots of scratches, but i was so excited to finally have it. kayak tracks terrible and pulls to left. i had other folks try it and we all found the same problem. it did flip me in the middle of the lake, but i'll own some of that responsiblity to just getting used to a new and different kayak.
wondering if this tracking to the left might be a factory defect? I'm a novice kayaker so it could be me learning to adjust,i need more water time.it does look good, and has a nice well. little concerned about the plastic lid, and the location of the well. also the paddles really don't "lay on the sides" and there is no way to secure them. it does have rod holders and lots of room for storage. i'm still unsure about it maybe i should have gone with the big yak. we'll see!
