It has no bulkheads, the seats are fixed, and the footpegs are adjustable. It's adequately stable and has acceptable speed even with one paddler. At only 57 lbs., it's one of the lightest tandems around, and the plastic forming is well done. The only real problem I've encountered was with the footrails, which are mounted with self tapping screws into soft plastic, and can't be tightened adequately to secure the rails and prevent leakage without stripping. I replaced them with stainless machine screws and nuts, which solved the problem.
All things considered, this is a good boat for the money. You can find faster tandems, but they're typically much heavier and more expensive. But if you just occasionally want to carry moderate loads in smooth water, you can't go wrong with the Pilot.
