I seriously considered using this as an alternative to a canoe or kayak, but I soon realized that looks can be deceiving. Yes, this boat would be great for pools, but other than that, I wouldn't consider it.
First off, the design of the boat has some serious flaws. There's 4 valves on the boat, and only 1 is good. 2 are on the bottom where you sit, 1 is an interior chamber of the boat, and 1 inflates an external chamber. 3 of the 4 valves stick out, and won't pop into the raft. So, when you go to get in, you can easily pop the valve open, and let all the air out, thus causing your raft to sink. This is what's bad about the boats from this company. Only 1 valve can actually be pushed up and inside of the boat. On my recent trip, I realized how unsafe they were, as I was in gator infested water. I'm lucky that I didn't get eaten by a gator. I ended up just renting a canoe in the end. Stay away from this brand, Intex is better.
