I bought the ripper for fishing, and rigged it to do so. I weigh about 180 + my gear about 10 pounds. Its good on a lake, but will take on water if its choppy. I must put scupper plugs in it or I'd be sitting in water all day. Overall its a nice beginner boat, or a daily boat for a lighter person such as a kid. It tracks well, easy to handle, and is lightweight. The hatch is a bit wierd, doesn't hold much,and may take on water. The drain plug is weak as well.
