I paddle a RTM Disco (SOT). It's 14' x 26'' and has a sea kayak style hull, as opposed to the usual wider hull designs of most SOT's. Makes it a bit 'tippy', but secondary is great. I can roll it with the thigh straps in place and it's about as fast a poly SOT as I've ever seen. I can keep up with most SINKs unless we're racing, but who races? I paddle in the Carolinas where the water can be close to 90 degrees in the summer, and the air temp is hot too. Can't beat the SOT in these conditions.But I'm working on a real sea kayak (WS tempest or VCP aquanaut) because I live up north on the Delaware river and near the Hudson. These waters are cold most of the year. The Disco is 50lbs and very convenient to haul and paddle. It makes most other poly SOT's feel like barges.
