Old Town Otter review

About the reviewer

I have been kayaking for 4 years. Own a Pamlico 140

Test environment

Calm, Flat

Review

Overall, it was a nice compact kayak. .while it didnt track the greatest, it did make up for it in stability, and EXTREME ease of manuvering. This kayak is, without the doubt, the best manuverer I've ever paddled. When I turned it countinuosly, it really seemed to be turning on a dime. So while it might not track like its on rails, it turns with little effort, much less than my Pamlico 140, and is stable. I would not recomend this kayak for kayakers seeking a kayak to cover long distances, or multy day trips, but instead a kayak for more casual style excursions that dont cover long distances. It may also be appropriate for mild white water.

Conclusion

Good kayak for shorter trips.
