On the negative side, it's a little harder to get into and out of the narrow cockpit if you're not at all agile, and self-rescue after capsizing is more difficult. Entry and exit for alternately wading and paddling will also be more difficult. Boats by Necky, Perception, and Wilderness Systems are popular touring brands. Recreational kayaks with their larger cockpits are a compromise adopted by many anglers, with boats such as Wilderness Systems' Pungo or Old Town's Loon series being widely used. Here, the open cockpit allows easy entry when launching, and it's easier to stow extra rods and tackle boxes around your legs in the larger space. With these wider hulls, initial stability is often greater than with touring kayaks, but this comes at the sacrifice of speed. For casual users, such boats are probably the best choice.
