Hi all, I just purchased an OT Jolt and was wondering how well it does on WW. I am new to Kayaking, but I plan on working up to some WW this summer. Had it on the Hammond Sunday, and it felt good. Water wasnt too crazy though.
Has anyone used this kayak before or know anything about it?
This site is sweet. A great resouce for a newbie like myself.

Those recreational Old Towns will take a decent beating and handle most of what you'll find around New Brunswick. You'll need a good sprayskirt, and you're limited to short day trips because you have little hatch space and you can't change position enough to keep your legs from going stiff. Ken, you wanna move this to Product Rating & Reviews?

I've had one for a few years and although I'm fairly new to the sport, I find it works well for our rivers. Very maneuverable yet stable. My only complaint is the back hatch not being water tight at all. In fact OT have put holes in it to anchor the bungy cords over the hatch.
