So I started out with a used Pelican Castaway and once I knew I loved fishing from a kayak I bought the Ascend FS12T. Both of my boys 20 and 17 use the pelican on a regular basis and enjoy it. Also my daughters 15 and 12 enjoy the pelican. it is a sit on top and tracks very nice and easy. The girls can paddle it with ease but they don't like to take me FS12T out because its heavier and a lot bigger and tracks slower than the pelican. But I can say that I absolutely love my FS12T! it has plenty of room, comfortable seat, dry storage, and tracks just fine for me. It might be a bit slower than others but its fishing not a race!! LOL!! I recommend the Acend FS12T and its $599 at BP.
