Love this kayak. I got it last summer 2020 and have been out multiple times now. As a tandem it is unbeatable. As a single, the position is perfect to scrape your knuckles on the carry handles. The one design flaw. Still love this boat though.

I bought this kayak for my wife and I. After seeing it on Dan's Headwaters YouTube channel, I added it to my list of tandem kayaks I was considering. After a lot of research of both the kayak and the company I decided on this kayak.
Sadly in the KC area, there is no Crescent dealer within hundreds of miles, so I bought it from a dealer in Omaha, NE. Because of 2020... I ordered the kayak in December and got it in April. I was pleasantly surprised that I actually had a kayak in my hands that was barely a week old when I received it from the dealer.
I have now taken it out more than a half-dozen times. Both as a tandem and as a single. This thing is enjoyable to paddle. Yes, its bulk takes a little getting used to, (I generally paddle sit-ins that are quite a bit more narrow), but once it gets going it glides for days and tracks straight as an arrow. The stability is fantastic. I have actually went out and bought a SUP paddle to use it as I stand up. I have also found the elevated rear sitting position to be nice when paddling tandem. It allows me to see straight ahead over my wife's head.
For a third kayak, this kayak is starting to become the most used.
