I've had my Puffin II for over 6 years. Although there are some quirks in the setting-up, these are mainly caused by the Chinese manufacture - I've got used to them! She is a great load carrier - I have kayak-camped several times, taken the bag ob trains & buses, and everywhere I set up, people gather round in fascination.
My boat also takes 2 - my wife & myself, for floating picnics on the waterways and rivers of Britain. I did have some problems with air leakage, but I found Pakboats Alv Elvestad very helpful in sorting out problems. Recently I undertook a 2-day marathon, a report of which, with pics, can be seen on www.truman-enterprise.org.uk. Now I'm getting on in years, I shall have to switch to canoes, but I can thoroughly recommend the Puffins - they are great on price, weight and usability
