I've been out with him in rough water several times. It's a great kayak. Easy to load and get out on the lake. Nucanoe sells the motor mount so no fabrication required. Pick up a used ipilot for $500 to $600 and a fishfinder for $100 and you're set. The rack for the hitch is only $50 from harbor freight. In the first picture Jim has the other two kayaks tethered to his and has all three of them spot locked.
Just saying great boat for someone looking for a kayak. New they're $1600
