|I bought my Liquidlogic 14.5 foot tandem in the spring of 2012, at Canoecopia event in Madison Wisconsin. Probably have some 400-500 miles on it now after 4 years - so I'm ready to give some opinions. This boat has met all of my expectations, and exceeded a few. Features that were most important to me were comfortable seating, ability to shift from tandem to solo (my wife only joins about 20% of the time), and large open cockpit so my dog can go with. The seating is very comfortable - an important feature for this type of boat where you may be seated continually paddling 2-4 hours between breaks. Switching from tandem to solo is very simple, 1-2 minutes max. Where I was surprised is in the stability of the boat. It's is very wide and flat at the beam, so much so that in solo mode, you have to work very hard to get it to tip over. The rear hatch is oval and quite roomy. The hatch seal could be better design, as it's often very tight and difficult to pry open. At 70+ lbs it is fairly heavy boat, which is a good and bad thing. The only other complaint I have is that I ended up installing more floatation in the nose . The front 12 inches or so can't be used for anything else - so fill it up with floatation material and let the boat ride a little higher when swamped.
