Fast and sleek - This boat flies through the water with ease. The Osprey HP was fun to build, and came out great. You can't beat the feeling of knowing every inch of your boat, and putting the "made in America" stamp on it. I think Pygmy should advertise the fact that all their boats can be reconditioned and upgraded after years of hard use - this makes their life almost unlimited.
Pygmy Boat's staff is the best!!! When I needed help, they had good advice and promptly sent things I ordered. I would give them a 10 out of 10 for service. This is my second Pygmy Boat and I love them both. They are more like old friends than kayaks. Happy Paddling.
