I love this boat! It is more fun than anything I've paddled in the last 2 years, plus it is SO fast. I passed up some of my friends in longer, regular touring yaks (without even realizing it.) I like the Greenland style and the large hatches. The one I paddled did not leak a drop. I used the Surf to Summit high seat and was comfortable enough to paddle for 5-6 hours. The only drawback is the one reason I could not buy this Freedom. It weighs 65 lbs, and half of that is more than I'm allowed to lift. Sure wish they'd make it out of a lighter plastic, fiberglass, kevlar or ???? Then I'd give it a 10 1/2 instead of a 9. Are you listening, Wilderness Systems??
