It's too bad Necky does not make this boat any more, it seems to be a very good design for both rivers and surfing . A good boat to get started.
On the downside, as the outfitting is poor, Dagger or Perception thighbraces are highly recommended to replace Necky plastic strips. Needs dawg bars as the security straps are the next-to-useless nylon web variety. A recessed drain plug and top to bottom bulkheads would be nice, too.
