My friends and I bought this boat for some tomfoolery on the river Cam in Cambridge. Being a very placid river, not surprisingly the dinghy has stood up very well to our adventures. We've been out in it about half a dozen times now and our trusty vessel has survived collisions with punts, being capsized and all the other ravages that its intoxicated passangers could throw at it. The boat is well built and extremely sturdy, and even though advertized as a 2-man dinghy we've managed to get 3 in it comfortably, and 4 at a push.
The rope rigging that comes with the boat to thread around it is invaluable for speedy disembarkations and transportation accross land. The 'gear pouch' that is also supplied is essentially a dry bag, and it offers some protection for phones/wallets etc. However it doesn't close very well, especially when it's wet, and if the boat capsises its contents quickly fall our. My advice would be to leave mobiles and other valuables ashore.
All in all a well built, well priced and trusty vessel!
