My father bought one, since we're sometimes fighting over our Torrent. The Buzz is a whitewater sit-on-top of somewhat radical design. The rocker is extreme, matching the ability of almost any ww boat to spin. Scuppers are numerous and of ample size. For a ww SOT, it's a shade narrow at 26.5". The footpegs are solid and easily adjusted. It's got a couple small hatches, so don't plan on cramming large objects inside. The "iffy" feature is the high gunwales/deep cockpit well amidships. One of the advantages of an SOT is easy self-rescue, and this design makes it harder. But, if you want the feel of a hardcore creek boat in an SOT, this is the ticket.
