After several years of renting and reading the paddling.net reviews I finally decided on the Pam. $329.00 at Dicks Sporting goods and my Mango river runner was ready for action. I've added a $40.00 bulkhead to the rear so my gear won't wash to the front in case of a roll.
I've taken her out 6 times so far and couldn't be more pleased with her performance. Mostly river runs in the northern NC mountains. I weigh 250 so the added carrying capacity comes in handy. She turns on a dime and tracts well enough on the calm water as long as you keep your speed up.
If you want a easy transportable boat that works well on calm and whitewater you won't regret this purchase decision. Class 3 rapids or an evening on the pond, this is your boat. Buy it, then rinse and repeat.
