Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been using the bay almost every weekend for two months now and am VERY happy with this product. I researched the heck out of it before buying. The ONLY down side is that in rough water, and only in rough water, it can jerk because of the sharp angles of the kayak. I mean the kind of waves that come in the kayak. I found if I relax with the waters motion it fixes that. This happened twice spending two full days on rough waves. This is so minor compared to the benefits of this kayak. You don't have to worry about storage, loading, buying racks or trailers, and the assembly can be done in five to ten minutes! Then it's just you and the water. It is so light it doesn't require much effort to go FAST for a long time. It feels like you are only paddling your own weight and nothing else. It's so light you can go in extremely shallow areas. The manuverability is ace in creeks or tight spots. My husband is 6ft (1.8 m) and loves his Bay too. The design of it is just genius. Be prepared to draw a crowd when assembling because this has happened every time.
