    I have a 2006 Marquesa in Red.
    \n
    \nBought mine at a truckload sale in 2006. Had the dealer add flush mount rod holders aft, scotty on the console, screw hatch behind the seat, a couple of sets of deck lashing and eyes for an anchor trolley system.
    \n
    \nI chose the Redfish/Marquesa for its combination of weight capacity, speed/tracking, and price. You can get boats that hold more weight, you can get faster boats, but its hard to find both, impossible at the price of a Redfish. Good all-around fishing kayak. High back seat is nice. Big tankwell has a molded bucket holder - great for bait.
    \n
    \nLarge flat cockpit is reinforced with 2" layer of foam.
    \n
    \nSome folks stand and pole/sight fish. At 6\'4" this is a a tricky proposition for me. I can stand easily enough, but its hard for me to push around or sit back down.
    \n
    \nHas a very flat bottom, but 14\' length tracks well.
    \n
    \nNegatives are the combination of smallish front hatch, foam filled cockpit floor and flat bottom - makes rod storage in the hatch nearly impossible. Certainly no 7\'ers.
    \nAlso flat bottom may be a liability in the surf (surf boats generally have more rocker & keel for taking waves better - I haven\'t tried, so don\'t know).

    \nI wound up having some issues with my truckload sale boat once it got hot outside - seemed that some of the plastic in the deck was pretty thin and it started to cave in. Made a trade-up for a new retail version Redfish that also came with a rudder and I\'m even happier with this one. Clearly heavier/better plastic and the rudder makes a world of difference for turning and fighting current/wind. I highly recommend the rudder.

    \nStill have this kayak. Still love this kayak. Super stable, super comfortable. The new (2007) Heritage "clamshell" padded seat is outstanding. changing my rating to a \'9\'.\r\n

    Jeff,

    \nIs this the one you let me borrow last year?
    \n
    \nIf so, it was so steady even I didn\'t fall out of it!
