A fairly good boat. This boat is a fast multichine boat for short day trips. Advantages of this boat are that it was fairly cheap @ $900 brand new from a specialty store. It is light at 49 lbs and easy to store. It has fairly good inital stability and secondary stability also. It turns on a dime and is easy to roll. When used in the ocean it is a good boat in the surf. The hatches have plenty of room for day trips and the day hatch is nice for holding anything form binoculars to lunch. This boat has a fairly small cockpit and is not for people for over 180-190 lbs. Disadvantages are that this boat is too small for extended trips(not enough room in hatches). The hatches leak pretty bad. Especially in rough ocean tides(lakes aren't usually too bad). I have had litres in hatches before, soaking everything I have in the hatches. This boat is too small for extended trips and can really bounce you around sometimes. So my advice is htat if you are doing short day trips on a lake or stream or play boating this boat is very good. For any ocean kayaking or extended trips go with a bigger, longer boat. Investing in fiberglass boat if you have the money isn't a bad idea either.
