Wonderful boat for kids. If mom and dad are kayakers, your young child will love this boat. It has all the fine touches of an adult's boat and with the optional sapele deck, is one of the best looking boats around. Because it has all the contours of a full size boat, the construction is a little more challenging. All of those wonderful compound curves happen over a shorter span than on a 16 footer, for example, but an extra set of hands and a spray bottle of water and she'll go together beautifully.
As always, the CLC kit was exceptionally complete, the fit and alignment of pieces was spot on, and their manuals are the best in the business. As for handling, it is a remarkably capable boat for its short length. Soon the young ones will be out-paddling mom and dad.
Great boat! Great build!
