Pretty sure I found the kayak I want....Kaku wahoo

I came across a kaku wahoo and it looks awesome and seems like it will meet my needs. Just curious if any one owns one and your thoughts on it.

    Never seen one in person, much less paddle one, but the specs look ok for an inshore paddler.

    Don't understand all these new experts on kayaks. At the launch for the Extreme Tournament there were 120 kayaks and only 10 were not Hobies. And not one Tarpon 120 or any paddle kayak under 14 feet. Maybe the new experts know something the rest of us don't.

    It's because 95% of the kayak industry in the US is geared towards lakes and bays. Offshore kayak anglers only account for a minute amount of sales, so there aren't a lot of kayaks designed for us. Now if you look at manufacturers in New Zealand or South Africa, you'll see long fiberglass skis, which are designed for distance and rough waters.
