You do have to get yourself centered on the float, but then it is so comfortable. Floats great. Took a little work to get it assembled -- yes, you have to put the cover on the float portion and inflate it.
Got this for my husband for early Father's Day gift. Easy to assemble and he had it in our pool right away. He weighs 200+lbs and it holds him with no problem. Doesn't take on water, so even I can lift it out of the pool after it's use. Best to get on it from the pool steps or shallow end. Very comfortable, as it has inner inflatable floats that keep it buoyant and you just let the air out of each to store during the off season. Color is a bright sky blue, very close to what the photo shows.
