This was my first boat, and for that it really has been great. Very stable, inexpensive, large cargo capacity, comfortable and controllable. Not too hard to learn to roll and dry enough with a good neoprene skirt. Problems I have had; foot pegs stink. I replaced mine with some aluminum ones which work much better. Bulkheads leak. Some of the deck fittings leak, straps behind cockpit can't handle paddle entry well. Can be a real bear to control in cross currents. The hull oil canned after a month (bent in under cockpit.)
Honestly I think if I knew better I would have bought something else. I've paddled Prijons and they so kick this boats butt and for basically the same price. I will take this boat into open water without hesitation, but it ain't all that.
