Kind of interesting but I think it' s more of a clam water craft. Spray skirt would be a must. I would go for a SOT instead. The only disadvantage would being able to stand up and cast out of of SOT. However, all that being said , when it gets dicey out there I would much rather be in my SINK than SOT. I've been in some nasty stuff and my Neck handled it with ease. Some of those yahoos in the power boats can really make for an interesting day on the water. I got buzzed by a couple of young bucks trying to show off for their girlfriends. I should have turned them in to the Coast Guard.
As a final note each yak has it's plus and minus . One of these days I will get a SOT to add to my fleet.
