The quality of the boat is very impressive as well.
I immediately called INTEX to ask for a replacement and was told that they don't replace parts that arrive broken.

Just bought a K2 at a local Ocean State Job Lot store and took it to the water on the same day. I've never kayaked before, but I just knew that any water vessel is not supposed to spin around the way this does. After reading some reviews online, I found that a lot of other people had a problem with the traking of this kayak because the only two keels on it are tiny and in the center of it. So I figured I could make my own out of some soft wood (balsa if anyone wants to know). Took me about an hour to make it with a hand saw and a screwdriver, and I'll find out this afternoon how good or bad my custom made keel is.

Update: the wooden keel I made works wonders! Even though it was very windy and the water was very choppy at the lake I went to, the kayak always kept straight. The easy fix makes this kayak really worth the money.
Changed from 3 to 4 stars.

First off, yes, the tracking is poor. There are many ways to improve it from strapping a t-frame on the stern(which is not that easy to ensure its straight), buy the extra adhesive skegs from the manufacturer or engineer your own. I drilled two mounting holes through the existing skegs and attached my own larger skegs I fashioned from some sheets of .100" polycarbonate and it works great.

People tend to look at this thing and just assume the first pointy rock it grazes is going to rip this in half but I'll remind all that navies around the world use inflatable boats of comparable material for a variety of tasks. I would warn that the first time you inflate it, do so in a cooler environment and do not over-inflate it. A couple friends got theirs, inflated them with hot air and then set out immediately and they now have a mild but seemingly permanent 5 deg list to one side as a result of expansion. I first inflated mine in my living room and have not had any problem of the sort.

As far as durability goes; my first use was a 51 mile trip down French Creek in North West Pennsylvania which in early spring is rated class 3. The trip started on Friday afternoon and ended Sunday evening, with camping on islands at night. The second trip was 20 miles on the upper Allegheny River, from the Kinzua dam to Tidioute, PA, launching just before midnight on Friday and arriving in Tidioute on Monday morning. It held up quite well with no signs of wear despite being drug over rocky areas numerous times as well as bouncing gently off submerged rocks and being drug onto beaches. Never has one of these capsized and it would honestly take a lot to do so.

I own this as well as a Seveylor Fiji. I've also owed a lot of non-inflatable kayaks. I'll compare this to the inflatable Fiji. This one stinks compared to that one. If you can get a Fiji or simmilar within 50$ don't hesitate to reject this one. 2.5 stars

on the positive side:

1) more leg room. large adults can stretch out more. fiji is narrow and cramped
2) more back support on the middle seat.
3) paddles that come with it are strong, not flimsy like the seveylor's garbage paddles, so you might not have to buy another paddle.
4) boston valves on main compartments. Seveylor has mix of boston and non-boston on the main compartmets.
5) cargo net for convenience

Now the negative:

flat bottom and elevated sides makes it handle terribly. have to put heavy person in the front or it is hopeless to go without radical turns. As I said I'm an experienced kayaker and this boat is terrible for flat water even without any wind. the twin skags on the bottom do nothing that I can tell.

Compared to a real hard plastic kayak this is not very tippy but it's way more tippy than the seveylor because the main walls are higher up. you ride way down deep in this which is also not as convenient for short children.

sevelyor is made of higher quality materials designed to be over pressurized for stiffness (it has built in stretch gauges). this does not so it's always flimsy.

the seams on the cockpit are against your body so they are inconvenient. The seveylors seems are hidden and well thought out.

hard to clean and drain because there is not drain plug (seveylor has one). which means that unless you live in the arid southwest you will have to clean and dry this by hand before you stow it.

About 18 years ago, I used to whitewater kayak and had a Dagger RPM (which I still regret selling). Anyway, this year my wife, daughter and I bought an RV and I have found that many campgrounds we go to have great access to water. I have been wanting to introduce them to paddling but didn't want to invest a lot if they don't like it and am greatly limited in what we can carry since it has to fit in either the RV or the back of the truck. We could put a rack over the cab and hood of the truck, but, again, don't want to invest a lot, yet. I bought this based on other reviews and am glad I did.

For flat water (which is all I have tried in this, so far) this thing is great. We have the (apparently) new, green, version with the redesigned rudder in the stern. It pops in securely. I have experienced absolutely no tracking issues with this yak. Maybe that's because I was used to a boat with almost no stability (by design), but I think a lot of the reviewers complaining about the tracking just have not developed a good stroke on both sides, yet. It is easy to control and maneuvers surprisingly well with either 1 or 2 people.

I was also very surprised by how rigid it feels when inflated. I was expecting it to feel like sitting on a pool toy but it is surprisingly solid. Once in the water, you really forget it is an inflatable.

It also inflates quickly with the Boston valves and supplied pump. The seating isn't the best (after all, it's an inflatable) but they really aren't bad given the compromise. The paddles are ok, actually a lot better than I expected given the reviews, but I suspect that it the rings that tighten the sections together may give out at some point, but not sure, yet.
