I bought the 600x with a kevlar/fiberglass mixture two years ago for use in coastal Maine. The boat is certainly beautiful. It handles well. It's very lightweight. I was impressed with its speed. But I would not recommend this boat for coastal Maine where it is very hard to avoid touching a rock.
This boat is very fragile. I've had light cracking, which they say is normal, and some other slight cracks. I have made special efforts to avoid rocks, but if you hit one even slightly you pay for it with a crack. If you have nice sandy beaches and no rocks, then this boat would work for you. But be warned, this is like a piece of fine china. Not for every day use in Maine!
