As a first boat for my daughters it has been fantastic. A real confidence booster, with go anywhere ability. Even for Dad at 200 lbs, the Quest is fun, though it's not meant for that weight. I've seen them used in rental operations and it's no wonder why. They simply deliver on water fun for every paddler that gets into one. Try one for yourself!
We took them out today and found them to be a bit tippy at first, but after a few minutes I started to feel more comfortable. The Quest does move along very well for a 10' boat, glides nice, turns on a dime, and tracks well in very flatwater. But in any kind of moving water it needs constant correcting...I'm talikng about a gentle river current, nothing with a class number! Also, some of the design elements are questionable...in front of the seat where the indentation is for a beverage holder, they installed the seat adjustment buckle. Plus the comfort and available adjustments for the seat are mediocre. However, nothing is perfect and it does have it's attributes, so I do plan on using it a few more times before I decide it's "fate"!
