I have had my Rio out around 5 times and I think it is a great boat for the money. I have found that if you paddle really hard then yes, the boat doesn't track as well as a hard shell boat. but if you kind of build up to speed, then it tracks just fine. I actually had a guy paddle up to me and ask me about my boat . He was in a hard kayak and he said he was only a little faster than me. I have fished from it as well as a few short river runs. I have found that of you are paddling into the wind it helps to have the seat a bit farther forward.
