I bought one of the very first Aquilas to hit the US market. Since Valley boats sometimes come in way over weight I bought the boat in kevlar, which was a mistake. It oil cans like hell which results in spider cracks all over. I also don't like the skeg which uses the old bungee/take up line (since replaced on newer models with a slider bar). I can't complain about handling though. For a large boat it is surprisingly nimble, turns very well and tracks well even in quartering seas if you use the skeg. ALso very easy to roll. And this boat has lots or room for expeditions. I wouldn't recommend it as a day boat, or if it is your *only* boat. But for trips it's great.
