I love my Shrike Too! Its ocean cockpit gives me the snug fit I like, and it paddles like a dream; I only have to think about edging and the kayak carves a beautiful arc in the water. On days when I’ve had it out in a strong wind, I’ve not noticed much tendency to weathercock either; its low deck and responsiveness to edging make it track like an arrow in flight. And it has such beautiful, clean lines. Thanks for sharing such a great design!
