I bought the largest of the Featherlite Fleet, the 14 as I like the idea of yak camping trips. This boat is awesome. Handles and tracks beautifully, carries loads of gear, tent, sleeping bag, cooking eqp, food and supplies etc. Also great as a fishing platform with rear rod holders and a Scotty mount rod holder on the foredeck.
The watertight compartment in the stern is a great feature and the boat is well made and of excellent quality.
My only gripe is that the hull bottom (just ahead of the cockpit) can be easily dented when transporting on roof racks. I have overcome this by fitting a 'cut to fit' piece of polystyrene foam as a temporary bulkhead when transporting or storing the boat.
The boat provides a nice warm and dry ride and is very stable and seaworthy.
All up, very impressed. Thanks Heritage.
