Great boat for bumping along rocks! I have done this for years and other than very superficial scratches, no problems. I have more than gotten my money out of this boat and plan to use it for decades to come.
It is perfect for floating down rivers, scraping on rocks and have a great time. It is somewhat like paddling a barge when heavily weighed down with gear and trying to paddle all day long on lakes. This is likely from its wide profile (that and the flat bottom that give it incredible stability).
I have enjoyed this boat countless times on river trips. However, I am looking for an easier boat to paddle on week long trips on lakes.
Highly recommend this boat, with the above issues noted.
