Nice yak, nice and stable hard to flip but also somewhat difficult to right. Due to the yaks width I would recommend having a short strap attached to one side of the yak, that you could use to right the yak. (Strap would allow for increased leverage and right boat easier)

Good point. There is a strap, but it's under water and hard to locate when the yak is upside down. It would be easier to use it though. I'll have to remind my son about that. Thanks for the tip.
