We've had the boat 2 months. The primary purpose was to find a kayak that was dog friendly, for a very active, 55lb Dalmatian named Boo. He exits, and can get back in with ease - and the scuppers self bail all his dripping water fine. It's a bit boat, but moves well, and handles large boat wakes with ease. The seat is great, and the wheel to help with launching/retrieving is a big help.
Very pleased with the boat - Boo really enjoys it too, highly recommended for dog enthusiasts!

The Slayer 14.5 is a very nice boat. It is heavy at 73lbs, but it has a attached wheel on the keel that helps when moving it around on land. It has lots of room with an open clean deck, you can easily stand in this boat.... the seat is great, well built with 2 positions, high and low. Myself and fishing gear adds about 300lbs and it still floats in 4 to 5 inches of water.
Very easy to maneuver, it makes quick clean turns and tracks extremely well. It is fast enough. It takes large waves in rough waters. It makes a great fishing platform. I love this boat; well worth the price.
