It has some problems. All the hatches leak, quite badly. The skeg control leaks and though repaired once has started to leak again. Quality finishing in these detailes never happened. They are all easy fixes at the factiry but post assembly they are a pain. It has been said that poor workmanship is remembered long after the great price is forgotten. That is the case here.
Before you write this boat off for that seven , I judge these things very harshly. I own a Capella and an NDK. Beautiful boats but neither scored a ten. The Mystic is a great boat for a good kayaker about 100 - perhaps 180 Lbs. Max. 5' 0" to 5' 9" +- The lady that owns it is an excellent paddler and can make that boat dance. It is a little tippy for a beginner.
