Love them. Paddle slow moving creeks and near shore on larger bodies. Lots of fun. Picture on my desktop is my wife sitting in one with her feet resting against the forward lip of the cockpit. Put my 70 yr old 220# lb dad in one to try for his first time paddling a kayak. He liked it.
I would not whitewater where I couldn't wade ashore and drag it up on a sandbar to empty out. It's not a whitewater boat. If you found a skirt it would collapse from the weight of water on top. It's not going to roll, but on the other hand I think it would be pretty hard to accidentaly flip in the first place.
Tracks like it's on rails if you know how to paddle straight. Wonders all over if you don't.
