This is a follow up to the review I wrote about one year ago. I'm still happy with my boat: at 13 feet I can store it in my shed, at 46 pounds I can haul it on my car top alone without any problems and I can carry it around in a cinch. However, I must agree that workmanship is poor and that a few modifications are sometimes needed. This is why I'm giving it one point less than last time. But I still give it an 8 because it works well in most situations, you can have a snooze in it without fearing of tipping over, and it does go straight. Of course, being only 13 feet long and having such a rocker, the boat will turn more than other kayaks. But with proper paddling techniques, the boat goes straight even without the skeg (which I virtually never use).
