Hobie has had a Quest 13 in their range for some time, I too owned one and I loved it but in comparison the recently released Quest 11 has some excellent new features, the solid lifting handles, the draining stowage pockets, the replaceable keel guard, an additional 8" Twist and Seal Hatch and the self draining foot well make the Quest 11 an awesome fishing kayak.
The first trip out in my Quest 11 I was amazed at the comfort level of the seated position, as well a superior stability and tracking which came to into my spot light when paddling into and across strong currents. The Quest 11 held its
position and was not dragged or towed off line, With plenty of in hull storage accessible from three area of the hull I could keep warm clothes dry and have plenty of snacks, water and emergency supplies stored.
I have done little to customise my Hobie Quest 11, simply adding a scotty raised rod mount on the console, this will allow me to either fit a single scotty rod holder or if I feel I need more rod holders I can also slot my Scotty Triple Bar mount in there which will allow me to have up to three rod holders.
