I struggled with the concept of spending a couple hundred less and getting a boat from one of the big retailers, but after seeing the difference in build quality and materials, I was certain this was the boat for me. I love to fish from this thing, or lay back and float down the river. I can even sit sideways while I fish and let my feet dangle in the water to keep cool.
There is plenty of room for gear and rod holders. Some of the accessories are great, and the quality seat really puts the cherry on top of an already fantastic boat.
My only regret with buying this boat is that I didn't buy two of them! I am now looking at getting a second boat for my wife, and I cannot find anything else on the market that looks equivalent. I would absolutely buy another one of these and I recommend this boat to people every chance I get.
The kayak carries 800lbs which is perfect for tank diving. There is a wheel in the back and handles at both ends for transporting. I highly recommend this kayak for fishing. It has a place for your poles and I believe you could set up a sail system somehow.
