We have not tried it in the ocean but it is very,very stable in flowing river. Husband is 6'1", 195 and has no problem. Good leg room and adjustable backrest make for good individual adjustments.

Kayak is designed for one adult. could use in ocean, but it is not designed for that . white water would swamp it.

answer 4
i have been in and believe me, you don't want to be in choppy water with this. its incredibly hard to maneuver with the slightest wave action or wind. the bottom of the kayak is very wide and flat and works great on smooth quiet water only. also its pretty small. i'm 5'3 and can't imagine a 6ft fellow being comfortable in this little kayak. you should look into a bigger kayak and with a narrow shape. they're more expensive but more suited for ocean riding

What's the difference between Lotus and Daylite models?

Also, does the sail work on all three models (Daylite, Lotus, and Mantus)?

As best I have been able to tell, they are the same.

answer 2
The difference between the older Lotus and Daylite models was that one had a soft seat back and one had a hard plastic seat back. However, the newer Lotus and Daylite models both have hard back seats and so the only difference is in the name. The sail kit will work on all three models--Daylite, Lotus, and Mantus.

Question

Can the Lifetime Lotus Kayak stand up to river use?

We canoe down shallow rivers to reach deeper fishing holes, and while our canoes can take the abuse, can this kayak take the same? It wouldn't do our family any good to get individual kayaks if they're just going to sink.

yes its very hardy, I have used mine in shallow water where roots and rocks scraped the bottom and sides of the kayak. it just leaves scratches and grooves but the body is so thick, it hasn't been punctured. I've had mine for 2 years and its been abused by nature but it still looks good and floats fine
