I like this boat. I have four other kayaks and have been paddling for 4 years now. My three kids (11 y/o son and twin 8 y/o daughters) LOVE it! It's a great boat for beginners and those hesitant to try kayaking. Everyone (adults included) that has tried mine has been very pleased with how easy it is to handle. With the skeg, it tracks like a much longer boat. With the skeg up, it turns on a dime. Very nice. My son paddled 22 miles of the New River on a recent river camping trip (class I and II) and did very well. It can cary enough gear for a 2 or 3 niter. It's light and easy to car-top. The only criticism I have is the seat. I would recommend buying some after-market padding to make it more comfortable. I added some mini-cell to the seat and backrest...much better now. It's a great recreational kayak but not really a good touring or WW boat. It's a little slow for touring and a little big for anything more than class II. It does class I and II rivers very nicely though. Truly a FUN boat!
