Rated 2 out of 5 by from flips easily Bought this kayak yesterday and I flipped every single time I got on. I've kayaked before and never had a problem, even got on my boyfriend's 10 ft pelican and did just fine. Will be returning for a better one

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for kids I've used several different kayaks, this particular one is not very stable. It's great for my 12 year old, it's light weight and he doesn't seem to have to much of an issue on it in the little creeks and lake. The weight limit for it is 175 pounds and when I was on there it held me up but if you're close to the weight limit and lean it takes in water and turns over very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT! I read some comments about people saying "Don't buy it" or "It flips over too easy". Those comments had me very worried about buying it. Well, I bought it 3 days ago and had it out on the lake two days already and....I LOVE IT! Never have I flipped or came close to flipping. I am so glad I went with my own judgment!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lightweight but unstable Bought in November but first on the water in April. It was very unsteady and easily took on water. Will be returning and upgrading immediately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not stable for an adult Every time Ive gotten on this kayak I've flipped over. I weight 145 and am close to 40 yo. Kayaked a lot, but this thing is not stable. Prob good for a kid but at this point my 8 yo son has seen me flip so many times in it that hes even scared to get in it. super light weight...but at this point Im thinking the heavier the more stable they are.

We bought one of these sit on kayak used. There are 2 holes in the bottom of it. One has a kinda plug thing and the other the hole is just open. Is there supposed to be plugs in both?  What are they for? 

Asked by: Lucy
The holes in the bottom are called scupper holes, they are self-bailing. They can be plugged with scupper plugs which are available on our website. This is not mandatory. Each kayak has one plug that comes with the kayak which goes next to the handle at the back of the boat.
