I just started putting my Puffin Saco together and I was almost crying in frustration. I went on YouTube and saw a guy do it in 10 minutes.
I tried it again and it is a bit tricky but today everything worked great and I set it up in 15 minutes... Do not know whether I will be that lucky again. I have had to leave the stems on the skin and insert the keel into them. The rest of the set up is pretty easy.
The weight is right for me. Hopefully I will get a good amount of paddling done in her. I suggest anyone buying one to watch the video... it might save a lot of frustration.
