For what it's worth I'm really happy with my scorpio lv it's quite stable (initial stability). The lv (low volume) has a quite small cockpit, which i like as I'm quite lv myself! You'd need one of the bigger volume versions. You'll pick up a 2nd hand one for about £600.

Delphins are good too, stable and also good for waves (lot of volume in the bow).

You could also look at the venture capella, easky 17, perception essence, etc

I've not tried them.all and to an extent it's how you fit the boat that matters.

Think you may be getting confused with a Ford Cortina...I suspect the boat you may mean is the Dagger Cortez !

Hi,

Im selling my boat which is in excellent condition

Nelo - Navigator

A kayak designed to be an expeditionary boat, it has good volume and stability, but its length allows a good cruising speed. It is prepared to take a lot of equipment with three watertight compartments and a wide net of deck elastics. Also it includes a retractable over stern rudder, full length life lines, towing rope and handles in accordance with the ICF safety rules.
