Love this versatile boat! Was looking at Kayaks for a long time and this one was perfect for my needs. Tracks nicely and handles well enough to have successfully negotiated class I and II rapids so far, as well as lazier paddles and lake paddles. Love the extra large dry compartment in the back and the sliding seat to allow for solo paddling; I've paddled solo and tandem. Great for day and extended camping trips. The only other tandem to solo set-up I've seen is the Wilderness Pamlico...picked this one for the storage capacity and large mouth rear compartment.
Pros: Versatile set up and solo/tandem set ups both paddle well Tracks and turns nicely for the size Very stable Plenty of storage space with a nice large dry compartments and space up under the front paddler
Cons: Super Heavy -- 81 pounds I think Seems like it would make more sense for the rear seat to be the one that slides no foot pedals in solo set up Dry compartments leak pretty bad (to be fair not an uncommon problem)
