My wife and I both have these boats. We have had them since they first were introduced. We have found them to be fast and stable. We ordered them with rudders which have proven useful when caught out on open water during a small craft advisory. The rear storage cover looks cool but I found it to be a nuisance so I replaced with bungees. I also added paddle keepers and changed out the bow & stern carry handles which were painful to use and the boat is heavy. We are very pleased with them. As a previous reviewer said it's a "keeper".
