Nice boat. I purchased this model used and got a great deal with the paddle included. I like the comfort and stability. I wish the beam wasn't as wide as it is. Still, not too much difficulty in paddling. Storage is ample as long as you don't mind getting your stuff wet. A skirt is a must if you use this boat in faster rivers, etc. It's not terribly fast; yet, it's a decent balance for longer trips. I hate that it doesn't have a drain plug or storage berth. Oh well, it's meant to be a summer-fall boat...don't need to pack the kitchen sink. Durability has been fair. Hull scratches easily. I would highly recommend buying used for your first kayak. Don't take the depreciation hit with a new model. Especially since resale numbers are quite poor.
