Going on two years now with my SK385XL. I have used it mainly for fly fishing the local lakes and drifting my local river. I purchase the fishing rowing frame, along with two seats, a trolling motor and and 50amp hour lipo battery. I can say this boat is durable, stable, and comfortable for two people. I can inflate it all in about 10-15 minutes, and it breaks down just as fast.
