Anyone tried the new Old Town Castine line?

Looking for feedback on this new line. Looking at the 14/14.5.

Not me. I’ve got two of the original 12’6” models.

No, but I have a couple of the last generation Necky Manitou 14’s in the shed. They share the same seat and hatch design as the new Castine. I’m very impressed with these features.

It looks like Old Town is getting a little more serious about getting back to kayaks. The only thing is that the price for the 14.5 footer is pretty close to what you can get into a real sea kayak–like the CD Sirocco.
