Hi Folks! My first post on the forum  :smt006

I'm considering purchasing my first fishing kayak from a private party. It's the Okuma Baidarka Kayak... I'm almost certain that this is the Cobra Marauder and just branded w/ Okuma. Check out the following links:

Any thoughts or feedback on this kayak to be used for the following:

Protected bay water fishing
Crabbing
Slough Touring

***REALLY*** appreciate your combined inputs!

They gave them to Okuma dealers that bought a certain amount of rods...its a Marauder.  FYI-Cobras with swirled resins do not have a great track record.

I hope my kayak doesn't prove you right, Sean...at least until I eventually move on to another kayak.  :smt012

Yours should be fine hojo...I am referring to the two tone swirled models like the Baidarka.

After months of testing and design, the new Okuma Baidarka Fishing Kayak is finally available for purchase.  Months of design and testing must have consisted of a day deciding which font to use on the logo, followed by a lot of on-the-water "testing"...  What a rough job they have.  :smt101
