My racy red kayak is as much fun as my husband's racy red Vette! This beautiful boat handles easily. Getting into and out of this boat is easy, even for a 5'10" person. The ratchet adjustable back band makes it comfy for long paddles. Only downside: the first boat I received was the wrong one (not the Airalit!), but the company corrected their error immediately with fast and friendly customer service.
