Ok, we talked speed. Now lets talk stability. You are not going to turtle this kayak unless you are doing something completely ignorant. It is rock solid. The secondary stability is amazing. Standing, no problem. Sitting side saddle, no problem. I was really surprised to see this combination of speed and stability. This is going to be a great boat fishing the marshes and back lakes during LSKS in Galveston this year.
This kayak is loaded with features as well. It has six mounting plates, three to each side, so that you never have to drill a hole in your boat. The pouch on the back of the seat is large enough to hold a jacket, your lunch or anything else you want to keep near you and some what dry. The center hatch is molded to accept your rod holders, camera mounts or anything else you would typically need a base for. There is also a specially designed scupper for your transducer although I doubt I will ever put electronics on this boat. The click seal hatch is super easy to get in to and seems that it will keep things dry inside. As many things as this boat offers, I am sure I am missing a few.
In short, this is the best combination of speed and stability I have paddled in a 12' kayak. I am still not sure why they are not more popular. If you want to get one on the water, feel free to contact any of the APT pro staff, Rick or Patti in the store or of course myself. I would be happy to spend some time on the water with you to see what the BG 2 can offer you.
