I test paddled (new) Tiderace's 2011 Xcapes and Xplores and was sorely disappointed. All of the boats had dangerously loose hatch-covers. The covers were soft in the sun.
As for the Xplore, I paddled one then promptly decided it was trash for the simple reason that there was not sufficient combing to hold the skirt on. HARD TO BELIEVE. I don't care how good they claim their hulls & deck to be, if the hatches flood and you can't keep you skirt on, you're screwed!!!!!
