Yea it's a nice Kayak, alittle long and heavy to lift over your head to load however.
I took it out on it maiden voyage and flipped it over in the shallow to find where that point was. It's a very stable Kayak too me, I had to try to flip it for the most part. Boy can you sneak up on the fish! My son Brandon can't wait to fish out of it, he wants the 13ft Prowler for Xmas. Hopefully we'll be able to find a used demo somewhere.
Good luck on your Baja trip wish I could carry your suitcase(s), sounds like a great time. Perhaps we can hit RI when you and I get back from our trips. I'll be in Florida for a week leaving wednesday also.
Nick & Fishhawk, JimW etc... let's tenatively plan Rhody Clave for later in October if we can swing it.
