Well, I am a moderately experienced paddler. I have been on the water since I was a kid, so I didn't think twice about the soft chines or chilly water today... I bought this boat today, the Sirocco 17' orange beast. Anticipating the joy of paddling this boat, I put her in the water straight away. It's February in north Alabama. Mild as it may be this year, the boat wanted me to feel every bit of that water. So she flipped me right in. I must admit I felt a bit sheepish, for being so anxious, I failed to put on my wetsuit. The bulk heads leak like a steal sieve. I am currently drying my phone and wallet that SHOULD have been safe in the compartment in a plastic bag. Nevertheless, lesson learned. This boat does NOT like 2 knot river currents. I am suffering from buyers remorse. I'm sure I will get over it and hopefully enjoy many miles of warm water paddling in May-September
