Great for small waters


This boat for the most part has exceeded my expectations. I bought it for the sole purpose of floating small creeks and rivers and it excels at doing this. First off, it has a ton of storage for a ten foot boat, you could easily pack for a 3 day camping trip. Secondly, the stability is unreal for a boat this size. I'm 5'10" around 200 lbs. and by my third trip I was able to stand and paddle for about 3 miles out of a 14 mile trip. Third, tracking is great for a ten foot boat and still has the ability to turn quickly, think of it as more of a baby Coosa than a baby Cruise. And lastly, the comfort. I've put over 40 miles on this boat since I've owned it and haven't had any of the soreness that I've experienced in any of my previous boats, that seat is just amazing! Now for the bad. I've only ever been in one kayak that was slower than this, not a big deal for flowing water, but would be a deal breaker for me if I had to paddle long distances on flat water. The pre-drilled holes for the Ram mounts are a great idea, however, I think they're a little too close to the sides of the kayak as passing tree limbs and large boulders seem to grab my rod holder every time I pass one. That being said, this is a lot of boat that outperforms its size, quality made in the USA, and well worth the money if it suits your needs.



Pros & Cons

Pros:
Size, stability, storage, comfort
Cons:
Very slow on flat water, locations for pre drilled ram mounts little too clowe to edge

Perfect size for a woman

I fell in love with this boat from across the store, I knew it was the one I'd get. Went with the 10' so I could load/unload by myself via hully rollers from the back of my car. If I had to do it again I would probably get the 12'(I'm no tiny girl)
I've had bass boats stop over and compliment the fishing setup. This past summer was great weather, had it out every weekend, caught a couple monsters, even got pulled around by a huge muskie.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Comfortable seat; awesome colors; being 10' I can load and move this by myself; keel protector; super stable
Cons:
because it's shorter it doesn't track well; hi seating was a little too wobbly for me

    • 303 UV (for plastic) as well. I've owned may sailboats (up to 34 ft) and their gellcoat, plastic and fabric sprays are the way to go.
