Here's what other sites are saying:

At ten feet long and just 34 pounds, the Ocean Kayak Venus 10 Sit-On-Top Kayak was designed for women who are small in stature but big on love for the water. Ocean Kayak took design feedback from female paddlers and placed the seat well lower in the boat in order to accommodate a woman's center of gravity, and gave the Venus a Comfort Hybrid seat that's especially comfortable and efficient for the ladies. Along with a rear tank well and bungee system, there's also a specially-designed car-topping handle system that makes it easy to load the Venus up and head to the water, and a drain plug so you don't bring any lake water home with you.

With its stable shape and light weight for easy launching and transport, the Ocean Kayak Venus 10(TM) Sit-On-Top is a fun recreational kayak built for women of smaller stature. The Ocean Kayak Venus 10 weighs only 34 lbs. and uses a unique handle system that makes one-person carrying and car-topping a breeze. Seat well maximizes an otherwise narrow beam to accommodate fuller hips and shorter arms; designed by women for women. Because a woman's low center of gravity does not require a deep seat for stability, seat well sits higher out of the water for a drier ride. Polyethylene polymer compound offers dependable strength and durability that stays lightweight and efficient. Comfortable seat back features extra padding on both bottom and back, providing optimal lumbar support. Molded-in tankwell with adjustable gear straps, deck rigging and multiple accessory eyelets provide convenient options to stow and secure accessories. Includes bow and stern toggle handles, a paddle keeper, a threaded drain plug, skid plate, beverage holder and molded-in graphics. For a drier ride, Scupper Stoppers are available as accessories (sold separately); the Venus 10 requires 6 extra small Scupper Stoppers. .
