Long haul paddlers looking for a kayak that was designed for big loads and fast crossings will find it in the Cape Horn 17 Pro. Its multi-chine hull provides excellent tracking, solid initial stability, and excellent secondary stability over a wide range of conditions.

Lakes & bays.

Review


Very solid boat, not built for speed. Very good primary and secondary stability. Quality materials good outfitting. Very uncomfortable seat as this is an older version before they installed the current seats. I've never felt the need to updgrade or trade this boat as it does the job well. A good all round performer with plenty of storage.

Conclusion


I made a good choice, this one is staying with me long term.
