Nifty little boat that serves up much usefulness per dollar spent. 

Pros:

* It is quite fast.  Probably faster than my Prescador 100

* Performs better in rapids than the vast majority of SOTs.  Would not hesitate to paddle Foster Falls, or the falls at Weldon with this boat.

* Enough space, and weight capacity for overnighters

* I could carry this boat by the thwarts like an oversized basket, with all gear inside the hull.  It is relatively light.

* Well suited for two bladed paddling.

* Does not meander, or rotate when drifting.

* Slithers over rocks, and performs well in shallow water.

Cons:

*  Not quite stable enough for practical stand up fishing. 

*  Seat design is not suitable for me.  Too low. And seat is cracked at one of the screw attachment points.  It will be modified with a comfy aftermarket seat.
