Thus far this boat has performed flawlessly for me. I bought it new and what I really like about the boat is that I been able to customize it to my needs. I've put a full A frame rack to hold kayaks on the back, plus three waterproof storage boxes. Console, steering and bolster all to my specs. I can't say that I've had it in that big of seas, other than a couple of hours in 8' waves, where we stayed dry. The boat is only a few months old, but thus far I love it. I hope to have pictures soon.
