Got this primarily for my kids to use, while mom or I are in the "good" kayak. All three can fit in it or I'll take 2, with the youngest in the center. Very stable and surprisingly easy to paddle, with very good tracking. Two 13 year olds smoked me in a race paddling it. The seats are comfortable enough without butt padding. We mostly use it in creeks and marshes, it's rugged and can handle scraping against oyster beds. I'd give it a 10 except for the weight. It's a struggle for the kids to carry, a cart is on order. Definitely needs 2 adults to get it on the roof rack.
For our use - recreational, fun in the water, and Grandparent/kid friendly - it's ideal.
