I just got a 2011 Sandpiper after paddling 6 or 7 similar boats. What I love:
The carbonlite 2000 material is top of the line and does not flex at all that I can tell.
The boat is only 38lbs. I can lift it easily and carry it by myself (40-something female).
The cockpit is long and wide.
The boat is smooth in the water and tracks well with decent speed for such a wide boat.
This boat is stable!
I live in Oregon and the boat was made by a family-run company right up in WA. I like buying local when all things are equal.
Dual bulkheads on these later model Sandpipers - if you flip it (I can't see how you would unless you took it into the sea) you can get it back up easy enough.

What I don't like:
no storage on deck - no bungees or anything (but the cockpit is huge).
A little more money than similar boats... That's really it.

I give this boat a 9.5 really. It is pretty close to perfect. I wish they made it in a 14ft length and had deck storage but no boat has everything I guess.
