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.
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer. I just bought this sail and used it in light wind (8 to 10 mph), and it worked great. The large size captures a lot of wind and I could feel the boat moving at a good clip. Going downwind is a no brainer. It can even easily go cross wind. You would have to change the angle of the sail in relation to the wind - just like sailing a boat. I am still experimenting going slightly upwind, which I think might be doable on a slightly breezer day.
The quality of construction seems reasonable, although there are a few wear points that I think will break. For example, the rubber stopper shows wear already after my first use. I can see the bungee cord wearing out where you fold the sail for storage. Good thing it's got a 3 year warranty.
All in all, it seems like a really fun sail and I can't wait to go out on a windier day.
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 used these in my kitchen and they look great! Shipping was a little rough on them. The bigger rug is wrapped around the others so the smaller ones were fine but the bigger one was only wrapped in plastic that somewhere alone the way ripped and snagged a piece of it.
