NDK quality problems are ancient history

I've owned two NDK boats, a 2009 Pilgrim Expedition and a 2011 Pilgrim, and the quality is as good as anything I've seen. I also paddle with quite a few people who own NDK kayaks, and the common QC problems (chopped strand construction, poor fit & finish) have long been resolved.
Of all the American composite kayaks I've had experience with, I would say Boreals are most comparable to Brit boats in their design, strength, and fit & finish.
