i recently just bought this boat off craigslist as i have been searching for one for a long time. i did quite a bit of research and with my smooth moves of negotiation, i was able to get the seller down to $250! not bad for a brand new boat that had only been out on the water once! i have only taken it into the gulf off dunedin, fl, through the channel and around caledesi island, but so far i am digging it. i have no issues with it veering off and tracks pretty well. a lot of people who say it veers, it is more than likely their paddling that is causing it to do that--usually veering away from the dominant hand.
this is my first SOT, and i used to own a dagger element--but like i said before, no issues so far with usability. i am giving it an 8 just for comfort for now. i took the seat out and installed my own, but still have an issue with sliding (i just need more straps). and the molded foot wells--i am a bigger fan of the adjustable tracks but that will be my next boat when i can afford a tarpon. i have yet to fish out of it, but it's still the best deal yet!
