Purchased for resale 8 of these boats from boat direct 2002.Planned to keep some for kids sell the rest. Found these boats to be rugged and very comfortable and stable. Excellent value as they all came with a paddle included.
When the family of four took a test paddle around the lake we all agreed they track awfully. Took the fun out of the ride. My son and I have since been out many times on the SOT's even though it can be a fair amount of work keeping them straight. I sold 6 out of 8 and people who purchased generally agreed tracking was lacking but they have made some adaptations and agree it is an overall good value cause they are solid and stable.
