If it weren't for the rudder, on open water, I would give this boat much lower marks. Everyone else has already mentioned the poor tracking, but the rudder makes all the difference. Purists would comment, "See, I told you so!", but I can out maneuver my wife's highly praised Perception Carolina and keep a true heading. On rivers this boat excels. No need for the rudder here. Stability is amazing. Ample space, comfortable seat and all around tough design makes this boat a ton of fun. Priced slightly higher than the Carolina but I like the water tight compartments and deck rigging better. This boat will last me a long time.
