  I hear ya.

I hear ya about the stuff produced in China. Living in a neighboring country like we do, you see tons of crap coming over.

The Seabirds that we've paddled on our previous tours, and my wife's XP480 seem to be pretty solid though. When we first got her kayak I checked the sanding around the cockpit because I heard it was a common place where the quality would suffer. Her kayak is well sanded though and quite smooth.

I suppose not everything from China has to be low quality though. After all, the iPhone I'm typing this on was produced there.
