As I said this is a great boat for someone who wants to do both whitewater and flat water and can only get one boat. If you are primarily going to use it for flat water and boat with others who have much faster boats than you I'd consider getting something else as this boat is really slow compared to my friends day touring boats, I'm always having to paddle harder to catch up. Also this boat is loud when going top speed on flat water, as it displaces a lot of water, plus the skew makes a slight clacking sound when down. Everyone calls me the tug boat.
You can fit a ton of stuff in this boat, it's great for kayak camping. The most ideal use for this boat is for long river trips, both day trips and camping ones, really anything where you're going on enough of the river to go through both the rapids and the flat stretches in between. It is perfect for this, while I'm always the one catching up to my friends on lakes, when on river trips they're catching up to me as they portage around some of the whitewater their touring boats can't handle and I just pull my skeg up and paddle right through enjoying all the terrain the river has to offer.
Also the seating in liquid logic boats is really comfortable. I'd look for newer model year boats as they have a better console for holding drinks and such than mine does (I think I have a 2010 boat)
Oh and if you are paddling a lot of flatwater get the high back seat accessory, it is way more comfortable when you'll be in your boat for long stretches than the low back.
