I did not give it a 10 for 2 reasons:
1) The cane seat is not comfortable for long without a pad.
2) The rear thwart should be curved, like the Bell Bucktail, the buckle of the back brace strap actually sticks into your back if you lean back too hard. I also added carry handles in front and back to make lifting and tying down easier.
Overall a great packboat at a great price (under $1400).
