I have used in in solo and tandem configurations and find it very comfortable (6',220lbs), stable, and easy to paddle. The bulk heads and well-sealed, though somewhat awkward, hatches provide nice day trip storage and no need for flotation bags. The rudder system is not ideal, and everyone uses it as a skeg, leaving it inline. As a rec. boat it is slow but not horribly so. Front and rear built in solid grab handles are comfortable for all hand sizes. A little flex, as should be expected in a sectional, is present in chop/waves.
Unique rec. boat that more friends have purchased over all others this year.
