Comments about Pelican International Pelican Castaway 116 Kayak:

I bought this Kayak for a great deal (sale, coupon & Sports Authority Rewards $'s). I read other reviews about how it leaks, even sank, but I bought it anyway because of the price. I'm so glad I did. Knowing the issues others had, I was proactive, spent another $8 on weather stripping to seal the front storage compartment, and $10 for some nuts and bolts to seal the drain holes before I put it in the water. These simple and quick modifications made it nearly waterproof. After 4 hours on the river with mild rapids, no water inside at all. I love everything about it except its tracking. It drifts from one side to the other when you stop paddling which creates a little more work but is manageable. My next project will be to add a skeg which will improve tracking and the Kayak will be perfect for less then half the price of other Kayaks.

      Comments about Pelican International Pelican Castaway 116 Kayak:

      this is a decent kayak for the money. lots of room in forward hatch. lots of space on rear deck. the only problem so far is the handling. this kayak doesn't track well in rough water or moderate wind. it's hard to muscle around to track straight. glides well, just doesn't track well. it really could use a rudder or scag system. set mine up with a fish finder. decent fishing platform for the money.
