I bought my Halifax used, but none the less so far I've really enjoyed the boat. Being new to Kayaking I've found the boat very easy to handle despite it's size, and itt did real well even in the surf. In open water it really cruses nice and when you want you can really get it to move, and I never even dropped the rudder. Two things I don't like, one is the wieght 70lbs, it's a heavy boat to haul around. The other is the distance from the back rest to the rear of the cockpit, makes it hard to get that spray skirt on. But, overall I'm pleased with the boat.
