It is easy to highly rate something you are vested in through purchase and build. You are not likely to admit you are wrong! But this boat is an excellent all round example of a Greenland style kayak which I really do rate as excellent. The 4mm gaboon ply and epoxy construction is thoroughly documented in the Build Manual and help is only a phone call away. The extremely accurately cut panels built up well. On the water the boats paddle well, track beautifully and for long thin boats turn remarkably well. Good stability once leaned over and turning is much easier. Plenty of room for camping gear. We have paddled them on lake and moderate seas and felt very secure. We also built the sister Sea Wolf for my partner who loves her boat too.
