Got a Prowler on sale at Gander Mtn for $250. Like the light weight and price and tandem capability. Tracking is average, seems durable, maneuver is average. Seats are not the most comfortable, and if you use kayak paddles your lap gets wet. Foot rests, storage, paddle holders are all great features. Most important thing: on moving water, do not get sideways into an obstruction! Low gunwales will immediately flood craft. Otherwise stable, but not as stable as a canoe. For light, cheap tandem capability and extra features, I recommend without reserve. In terms of anything more than light recreation it would probably prove less satisfying, but for the cost it might still be a good option. Tip: carry on cartop like a canoe, not a kayak.
