I sat in but did not paddle the new P&H rotomolded capella and the new Bahiya.<br />
There were some things that did not impress me, and some things that did.
new capella. the foredeck is lower, and flatter this is a "+". The coaming however is not as recessed and sticks up more than it used to, this I didn't like. The new hatch covers, are kajaksport obviously, this is always good. The seat itself is nice, but the back band did not allow me to lay back. This was bad. The new seat seemed nice but paddling it will tell. The hull has less rocker so it is supposed to track better. We'll see... The bulkheads are plastic and now glued instead of welded. This in and of itself isn't bad, but time will tell if the quality stays consistent it could be excellent. I would like to get it out with an IR backband and paddle it for a few hours to see.
The new bahiya looks promising, but it appears that it has A LOT of volume ahead of the cockpit compared to the sirius. But it could paddle just fine, it definitely has a deep v in the hull and hard chines, very nice hull profile. But I would need to paddle it to see how it handles. The glass work was top notch on the one I saw. All told from appearances it looks like a low volume quest more than it looks like a longer version of the sirius. But We'll see.
