I got a yellow boat even though the picture is blue, but that doesn't matter to me. I got two and my girlfriend and I took them down the Delaware river. They survived many encounters with smooth rocks in shallow water. There are scuffs on the bottom, but no actual scratches or scrapes. It's a very calm and flat river, and I wouldn't trust the boat on anything more than that, simply because it's not designed for heavy or rough use. I don't know what it's like in the wind because there wasn't any. It was big enough for me and my pack, and it got the job done well. The boats were light enough to pack out along the Appalachian Trail back to the car. All in all, a really great imitation "packraft" for a ridiculously low price.
