This is my second review of the boat. Its been out on the water 4 times now in the past 4 weeks of owning it! The boat is Heavy, and put together time is more than what I hoped for. However, once its together and on the water it is amazing. I have found one problem, and that is with the oars. They simply won't balance right for the boat. They are super heavy leaving you tired as hell. Also, all the parts on the boat are mildly noisy for fishing, so I have pur in rubber washers wherever possible and now its MUCH more quiet. All in all, I would recommend this boat to everyone! BUT I would recommend spending the extra cash on nice oars. I may change over some of the clips too just because fly line manages to hang up on everything. This may be avoided with the stripping basket I have just ordered! I will be taking it out pretty much every weekend, for the next 3 or so months for steelhead season, so I will give another report at the end of the season.
