This is review #2 as i've had the boat longer and now sold it.
Complaints: Outfitting is very recreational. The non-adjustable molded-in knee braces that are actually angled funny,at least for me.The seat back is rigid,high and hinged so its comfortable but not good for layback manouvers. Boat is quite un-watertight. with 2 seasons of use, the rear bulkhead leaked bad and it leaked through seat bolts and most spots where perimeter line goes through. Way to go WS, save 25c worth of plastic and make a leaky boat.
Still think it's a great hull shape, which by the way isn't any less prone to oil canning than any other rotomolded kayak out there, don't kid yourself about the molded keel keeping things rigid, it wouldve probably tried to oilcan worse than it did, but still it developed warpage in the front. Won't touch another Wilderness Systems boat for the very mediocre fit n finish, it could've totaly been a 9/10 if they put more thought into it.
