Jas, I am curious as to how thick the hull of the Pro Explorer is. Is it as thick as a Scupper Pro, or thinner like Cobra Kayaks models? I also have been paddling and fishing from a Scupper Pro TW for a few years. I've been looking for a second slightly wider kayak for those days when the ocean swell gets a little rough for the scupper.

My fishing buddy let me borrow his Cobra Fish-N-Dive yesterday. It's stability is is amazing. My buddy was able to fish through swell that sent me back to the beach on my Scupper Pro. The Fish-N-Dive also paddles slower/harder. I am wondering if you have paddled a Fish-N-Dive, and how you would compare the Pro Explorer to a Fish-N-Dive. I do realize that there is a five inch width difference between the two kayaks. Is the Pro Explorer easier to paddle than a Fish-N-Dive? Is it stable in above average swell?
