Don't be fooled by the three seats. If you intend to fit three people in it, or even two adults, you will be disappointed. If you intend to paddle solo there are much better options for you out there. But if you like to take your dog along this is the canoe for you. It would also make a great canoe to take a couple of small children on. It's 42 inch beam makes it exceptionally stable, so if your dog is big and clumsy or if your kids are jumpy you don't have to worry. The built in cooler will hold a six pack and lunch. The small dry storage compartment is nice to have but don't count on it to keep anything dry. One of the best things about it is the cup holders. This feature alone makes up for slowness on the water. The seats are comfy too. I just finished a 5 day, 120 mile trip paddling every day for 6-9 hours and was comfortable the whole time. To sum it up, if you want a graceful canoe that you and a partner can do some serious paddling in, this ain't for you. If you have small children, or maybe a dog, this canoe is worth considering.
