I wonder why they stopped making this boat. I bought mine around 2001 and I love it, its now 17 years old. I got a good deal since it fell off a truck and had some minimal damage. Looking at the other reviews everyone agrees.
I use it in the Gulf of Mexico, in breakers miles off shore, going around barrier islands, and I have enough confidence that I just take some flares and a marine radio that I fortunately have never used. In fact I have rescued power boats three times over the years (engine problems or ran out of gas). They did not bring radios.
I'm now a little old guy and I can still lift it onto my Subaru. It has fallen off the car a few times over the years, and sustained only minimal damage that was easily repaired. It still looks great. The skeg design is perfect during the few times that it is needed, and I have never needed a rudder even in 20 to 25 mile an hour winds. I wish they made a surfski version.
