Bought one of these last fall to replace our old wooden floater we had for almost 20 years. Was a little skeptical and unsure about going with plastic, but the wife was really pushing for it because of the low maintenance advertised. Having lost countless hours of my life sanding, sealing and all that, I eventually gave in. We went with the 20 x 20 and it has been great. Beside hosing it down and scrubbing off the occasional bird droppings, I haven't had to touch it. Great product.
The dropstitched floor increases the stiffness of the kayak, such that it doesn't wrinkle on the sides when you sit in it, and is slightly thinner. Seems more durable, too. Less comfortable than the original, feels like sitting on a harder kayak floor. *** , so got to me quickly.
I was afraid to buy this paddle because it didn't have any reviews but I am very happy I did. It is basically the same as a paddle you can pay a lot more for at an outdoor store. The only problem is that the drip rings aren't great but otherwise it is a great paddle.
