Tried it fishing along a river / playing at a Toronto beach Ontario. With the directional stabilizer boat tracks straight & moves slower than a kayak but about the same as a canoe.
Tandem paddling is possible but a little cramped for a second person, waves & boat wake are easily handled.
For the solo angler this will get you further than a pontoon or belly boat, but the 380X will get you even further if you don't mind the extra length. The 340X just did not paddle as fast as the 380X probably due to it's shorter length which you think would compensate by having less drag.
The 340X is a very nice boat if you can resolve yourself to knowing that all you want is a tough little inflatable one person kayak that paddles like a canoe for the cottage, or beach, or for the kids, or something for fishing a small river or pond... or going down some whitewater... wait a minute, this is a nice boat. See my 380X review.
