One negative is the total failure to track on the river.... it was nearly impossible to drop the paddle and take a picture without spinning 30 to 60 degrees of track. I was jealous of my fellow traveler's rudder which he used to track a straight line. btw, I added an assortment of deck hooks, tie downs and mounts for gear and camera.
Basically good if you need a "barge" to transport a lot of gear by kayak.
I like how the front seat adjusts back to mid-cockpit for solo paddling. In this position you will be lacking the foot rests and may opt to install an extra set later. Thereís still plenty of room in the back seat for smaller kids or a dog to ride in. Most tandems donít work as well as this one when soloed.
As a tandem, itís only as good as the paddlers who are using it (like most tandems). Sitting closely requires synchronization between paddlers to prevent excess paddle collisions (the rear paddler must follow the frontís lead). If the front paddler is short, you can move the seat forward to prevent this. The only problem with that is that the back of the front seat has the integrated foot rests for the rear paddler, which may become out of reach.
