I have a 1999 expedition model that I recently took with my wife, two year old daughter an I on an trip to NewZealand. I use the boat for both double and single kayaking. There is enough room in front of me, in the rear seating position, to put my daughter in a fabric foldable we-no-nah canoe seat,so it becomes a three(well,two and half)person kayak. The boat is well made overall,although I think the floor frame plywood panels could be made of a slightly better(tougher) grade of plywood. One panel has been damaged twice during shipping and seems a little week aroung the holes for the seat retainer tabs. The boat tracks well in the ocean and I am getting use to its large volume for solo paddling. I have lower back trouble and this is one of the few kayaks I feel comfortable in.
