My wife has owned this boat for a good 5-7 years and loves the light weight and way this boat paddles. It does have a few problems. The cockpit is cut low so put the boat through a 6 inch wave and water splashes in, not a problem I have with my Eddyline.
The retractable skeg is a great feature that enables the boat to track beautifully. The only problem here is with use in saltwater the wire connecting to the skeg regularly binds making the skeg unworkable. We've tried everything, set the boat to the factory, replaced the while skeg unit and its still requires constant maintenance.
While my wife still loves the way the boat paddles she wishes she'd take the dealer up years ago on his offer to replace the boat with another model.
