Has anyone used this yak? Just picked one up in decent condition, I am worried about the hatches leaking.

This yak was veering to the left for some reason and I always had to use right rudder to compensate, turns out the front underside of the boat is bent slightly to the left!!! I for the boat for 200$ but damn thats a big flaw, they must have made it in manufacturing, let it sit too long on one side I guess lol!
The rudder corrects it but without a rudder the thing will literally go in big circles.

Guess ya know what side to run your long line on  ;D
Try to store the yak so that I flexes the other way. Over time it should correct its self.. I've never done this but it makes sense to me.

That sucks, must be hard when the wind picks up

surprisingly... not at all. This thing sits so low on the water its virtually wind proof, handles great in the wind, its the waves that are the problem with this yak. It cuts through small chop on windy days nicely, but swells just want to tumble this thing.

ok so keep your eye out for the guy who throws rubbish in the ocean and paddles large circles to the left.
