i've fished out of kayaks a fair bit and i ALWAYS tie my rod to the boat.

those Sit-on-Top fishing 'yaks are so freakin' wide they are virtually un-flipable. they are designed with sealed air chambers and can't be sunk. even if a wave broke on you and filled the cockpit, you'd only be wet for a few minutes. the cockpit has "scuppers" and is self-draining. SoT's are a completely different animal from a true sea kayak.
