I'm planning to buy a Galaxy Sturgeon immediately after I have completed a safety at sea course, what do you experts think of this kayak. I've read very good reviews but would like genuine users of the kayak yo comment.

I own one and love it. I went to a safety course on Saturday with Simon Everett and there were 5 others there. I expected to be ridiculed all day but they all thought it was a great kayak for the money. Even Simon said it looked good. It has good stability to it and it's still pretty fast through the water.
The only negative comments about it have come from people who have never seen one. Everyone I know who has one or has paddled one thinks it's great.
Only two niggles and that's the anchor well in the back acts as a bowl and just fills with water and I personally didn't find the rudder controls great but I have sorted that now. (Others don't seem to have a problem with them)
The tankwell itself has two scuppers to allow for drainage but within the tankwell is a moulded recess for an anchor. It is this recess that fills up. Probably only about 1-2 litres of water. Doesn't affect stability.
They come in Orange too.
