I just purchased this boat last week and I can tell you that this is a exceptional boat for the money. The kayak blows up pretty stiff and the self bailing air floor removes the water quickly. The boat is not tippy like my previous kayaks, the Sevylor pro and the Innova safari. The downside of this boat is that it is a little heavy (35 lbs), the backrest not very supportive (recommend a aire cheetah chair), and the bow is a little short (making for a little more water splashing in the boat). However, all in all, I still think this is the best inexpensive inflatable kayak on the market. It’s a great value. Oh, and don't forget your lifevest.
