Works for me

I need a boat that would store in a small space and would seat two people. I bought the tandem version (3 sections). With a bit of Tetris and a tie down on the partially open hatchback, I can fit all three sections in the back of my Prius.

If I opt for two sections in the solo configuration, it fits *easily* into my Prius with the hatchback completely closed.

The tandem setup is incredibly stable and tracks pretty well at 14' in length. The solo setup tracks a little better than any other 9' recreational flat bottom kayak. Either setup is hard to drain and dry, and I had to install my own drain plugs. It can be difficult to handle, as the instructions state not to cart the boat in the tandem configuration, and the sections do not have comfortable handles for ease of portage. Again, one can install such things.

It has been a little hard to get a replacement part for a piece I broke on the boat, as the company hasn't responded to my emails.

That being said, I really enjoy this kayak because it perfectly fits my storage situation and effectively allows me to keep two boats (solo/tandem) in the space of one boat. There is plenty of room in the cockpit (24" wide) and my legs fit with room to spare even though I am about 6' tall.

** Just an update: the company did return my emails and gave me the parts I needed for free. **
