Yes it's a gumotex in the U.K. but exactly the same spec and from the comments, the same fun. Superb as a sea kayak on short runs between islands or hugging the shore. Will take 1/2 foot waves in comfort if its not too windy. The skeg is essential for good tracking which can be a nuisance in shallow river water or minor rapids Nice just to be able to get it out of the car boot and set it up in 10 minutes. And easy enough to carry about. This makes it a dream using public transport. Buses, trains, boats and light aircraft - no problem. The material has taken everything so far over 3 years including canal water that looked like paint stripper. The only time I felt nervous was the sight of seals' teeth that had shown a very strong interest in the boat out at sea. Maneuvers well and is fast for an inflatable. Can take some bailing when its windy or surfing which is no problem in warm climates or with a wet suit. Brilliant. A real bonus is its comfort. Dangerously so if you fall asleep in hot sunshine bobbing up and down on a gentle swell!
