I found the shortcoming to be the seating system - it can get uncomfortable after just a couple hours on the water - i added a stadium seat cushion to alleviate numb bum. The foot pegs are fairly small, which can feel uncomfortable after a while on the water as well, but for the price point it's great. Bulkheads and hatches are expensive, and I can always supplement seating. Coaming is sturdy and the boat has a very nice line in the water.
If your price range is under $600, I highly recommend.
The price is good if you are looking for something that will get you on the water. For the kit, $175. I've seen a lot of these being purchased around the shore of a small lake I paddle frequently. However, I seldom see them used.
It has a flat bottom, so primary stability is incredible and the cockpit is huge so even the largest paddler can climb in and out. Best use would be for fishing small lakes or letting kids paddle near shore.
The material is a very thin, cheap poly that will break down or warp in the
sun fairly quickly.
Instead of slicing through the water, it plows its way through, giving the feeling that the boat is braking between paddle strokes - which can be frustrating after a while.
There is very little gliding or tracking and the stern waggles significantly with each paddle stroke.
Ok for a starter for kids, but I would recommend looking for something that has a little more streamlining.
