Family-sized paddling power.
Like a less-temperamental floating camel, the Old Town Dirigo 155 Tandem Kayak has room for two and carries plenty of gear across whatever body of flat water you toss it on. Durable rotomolded polyethylene plastic is sculpted into a stable, forgiving shape that is still surprisingly fast through the water, and cushioned, contoured seats make every outing a comfortable one. Even better, the Glide Track foot brace system and included thigh pads ensure a stable and responsive ride.
The combination of a Click Seal hatch and glove box hatch provides plenty of dry storage space for delicate gear, while bungees at the bow and stern give you spots to stash whatever gear you have that can stand to get a little wet. Old Town designed the Dirigo 155 to be rudder ready, so attaching the Old Town rudder system (sold separately) is relatively painless, and even recommended if you're planning on doing a lot of paddling in high winds or strong currents. The Dirigo does come with a removable child's seat, though, so you can go ahead and bring junior along on those mellow and relaxing paddles.

Big and comfy
- I've used it several times
This is our first tandem. We chose it as, among other things, it has a "jump seat" for a child (in our case, serial grandchildren). The boat is comfortable as well as well-built. Our only criticism is that it doesn't track easily; the bow is easily pushed off-course by the breeze here on Breton Bay in Leonardtown, MD (either that or my wife is a LOT stronger than either she or I imagined). We are considering putting a rudder on it. . . It is heavy - not unexpected - and we purchased a set of wheels to roll it down to the beach near our home. Overall, we like the boat and look forward to many happy trips in it - with and without grand-kids.
