I wheel a first gen shortbox toyota truck,  I've been hauling a 10 sit in for years it's  getting to be a pita getting in and out of.
Looking at this

As a shorter replacement.
Anyone using this for small water work?
Thoughts and suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

What kind of fishing you looking to do?  Ocean, bay, river, lakes?

Price is hard to beat, for a small lightweight yak.  But honestly this description is filled stupidity:  :smt005

The SENTINEL 100X ANGLER fishing kayak has an open cockpit, ideal for bringing all of your essential equipment onboard while being able to stand up safely. At 9.6 feet long and weighing 44 lb, this sit-on-top kayak is specially designed for experienced anglers who want to reach narrower spots for rich fishing grounds. In addition to the usual components, this sit-on-top kayak is equipped with practical accessories dedicated to fishing such as a center console with compartments molded into the cover, two clips for paddles or fishing rods, two accessory eyelets, and two recessed rod holders. Explore the most remote fishing spots aboard this wonderfully designed fishing kayak.

I'd see it up close and see if it works for your purpose.  Otherwise I'd look for a tarpon 100, just cause they are proven yak worthiness.

Thanks.
That's  an interesting boat, right in the same feature class...
Seems that prices are all over the place.

I'm looking for a shorter length.

If you are looking into using for just lakes? Should be fine. Rivers might be a different story depending on how fst the current and how well that kayak tracks.

I'm going to agree with AlsHobieOutback on this.  The Tarpon 100 or the newer Tarpon 105 are 10-feet long versus 9-feet 6-inches for the Sentinel, and they're 8-pounds heavier, but they're about as good a boat as you'll find in an affordable 10-foot kayak.

But if the Sentinel suits you and your purposes, go for it.
Sometimes, when the water is quiet, you can hear the fish laughing at you.

Thank you for the information.
Going to be an interesting hunt.
Cheap small light...
I've got the other end of the spectrum  already.
