It's 3.9m long, I believe it's a Seak brand, similar to

Came with a paddle and seat as well, so a very good deal. It's missing the scupper plugs as they guy couldn't find them, but I figure they're not too expensive to replace but I'll see how wet I get without them first. I was glad to find a slightly longer kayak, as I will use it on some bays when I go down the coast and our lakes can get pretty choppy when the wind comes. We'll see how my back holds out lifting it on and off the roof.

Thanks Drop Bear. I'm hoping the nice weather holds out down here for the weekend so I can have a go without freezing.

I managed to off the roof part with no worries, resting the bow on the back of the car with an old windscreen shade under it to protect the paintwork. Only really lifting 15kg or so at a time that way. Should be all good.

Hope I can catch a heap more now I can get out around the reeds and weed that seems to line every lake down south.

Hey a-frame81

Yep, you aren't really going to get soaked without plugs but they sure help!  

Kayaks are so handy for getting places were boats and people can't. Up a feeder creek, in the lillies, through the trees. You name it...

Took the yak out for the first time this morning. Just a paddle today. Hopefully it's warm tomorrow morning so I can head back out for a fish.

Seems pretty stable and paddles well as far as I can tell. I haven't paddled a kayak for 15 or so years.
