As always, the CLC kit was exceptionally complete, the fit and alignment of pieces was spot on, and their manuals are the best in the business. As for handling, it is a remarkably capable boat for its short length. Soon the young ones will be out-paddling mom and dad.
Great boat! Great build!
As for the build, I personally prefer the sheer clamp construction of this boat to the wired deck seam of most others. It is a little more forgiving and a lot less challenging. No problems with the build. Everything went together as it should. Another great CLC boat (this was my second and I'm on to my third, a C16 for my ex-wife... don't ask. LOL)
