We have had our Kayak for 10 years, and love that it's a double. We use it as our dingy on our 36 foot Catamaran, and it can easily be handled by one rider. It's great for just paddling around, and we can take both of our little dogs when we go ashore. The storage in the hull stays dry when we go ashore for provisions, or beach going items. We also use it take our little dogs onshore when we they have to go potty...and they love it!! We highly recommend this kayak, only one to rack, care for and carry on our boat. We also have a trailer and a roof rack on our car, and depending on how far we are going to kayak, we have the capacity to take it with us. As two women we can carry it as it well.
