The downside is that the hull speed is slow for paddling, but that is unavoidable without spending triple the money for a comparable heavy duty inflatable. Get the largest longest paddles you can. A strong person can paddle this better with the big paddles, plus the wide boat demands them if you don't hold your paddles high. I bought the Sea Eagle Paddles.
Sevylor is now owned by a California company, but still made in China.
