Like one of the other reviewers, I bought this boat without paddling it first based on another's recommendation. It is the first and only time I have ever done this and, man, did I learn my lesson. Its too big and clunky to be a decent solo boat. As a tandem, it's small and cramped. And it paddles like a pig...the canoe version of a John Deere plowing through water. And it won't go straight, J-stroke, stern-pry, nothing works. If you plan on doing low to moderate whitewater it will be fine. Otherwise, forget it.
