    The prowler is a good kayak, it is a older design by ocean kayak and a lot of there older models were well known for being a "wet ride". Even with a weight capacity of 400lbs or something like that plan on there to be a little water in the foot wells and maybe some in the seating area. I believe they raised the seat area in the newer models to help with this issue. Not a huge deal just get some scupper plugs and your all set. It is really a versatile kayak. You can take it out in a river one day then surf launch it the next. I think you will be pleased with it.

    I've got a Trident 13. Can be a wet ride at times but usually when the conditions are on the rougher side. I bought some one way scupper plugs that allow water to drain, but not collect in the seat or tank well areas. The front scuppers stay open.
