Bought one for my nephew, who isn't a serious paddler. Okay boat for that. The seat is comfortable, but you can't find a position where the gunwales function as reasonably good thigh braces for better control. You just sit in it like a bathtub. The hatches are cheap pop-ons that require some effort to pound on, especially when the hull material isn't the most rigid in the world. It tracks well and moves along okay for a boat with a 28" beam. Forget the claims that it's faster than sea kayaks (later softened by the hyperbole police to, "gives them a run for their money"). If anyone buys that a wide, flat-bottomed boat of flexy plastic approaches sea kayak speed, he deserves all he gets. It's faster than some of the floppy "pool noodle" boats in its class, but that's about it. It's a friendly stable kayak that will haul a reasonable load and keep a novice paddler going reasonably straight. If that's your intended use, it's great. If you're looking for true performance, look elsewhere.
