Had to wait 2 months to receive my Castine. Wouldn't have been a problem if dealer and OT would have been more accurate about the time: "4, maybe 5 weeks guaranteed". Yeah right! Got kayak home and did thorough inspection in garage: nylon strap to adjust seat back had been cut through approx. 95% of its width, foam bulkheads were a joke: 1.5" gaps in certain areas and clear sealant used to seal them was absent in some areas, cockpit edge that is covered by the little black strip wasn't even glued in several spots and edge was all ragged. Informed dealer who said to bring it back and possibley send back to OT, but didn't want to wait another 2 months so just settled for it. Last time I even think about buying an OT and will try to pursuade other buyers. Old Town and the persons who built this boad should be ashamed!
