This was a boat that was purchased for my son's family. It arrived at my house in a timely manner and in good shape. I knew that when they were camping that they would like to have a boat but they have a trailer and nowhere to put a hard sided boat, hence the blow up canoe.We took it out of its packaging immediately and aired it up. I was surprised at how fast it aired up with the compressor that came with it. The boat really does get hard and firm as if was made of hard materials and does not flex like a person might think it would. My son thought it was too tippy when in the water and sitting on the seats with the family so they elected to sit on the floor. I think maybe the blow up seats you have for it may be a better choice for them. I and my son had it out once and I thought it was not that tippy.

I asked my son if he wanted to trade it for another of your boats but he said he was happy with it. He did try turning it over and getting in and was able to do it without much water getting in.

I received my TC 16 last week. It fits in my car! Thats a big plus. The single stage air pump works its wonder in less than 8 minutes. I am 72 years old and at this point am unable to pick up and carry the inflated canoe ( I am going to work on my strength). Impressions - a quality product but if you plan on going out by yourself and ordered the web seats I I would suggest that you get the three seats because they will only fit in the designed location. Why do I say that? If you sit in the back as a single, the front of the canoe is out of the water and turns into a sail in any kind of wind. My wife and I sailed for many years and during that time I developed an intense dislike for any kind of o ring. They are just difficult to deal with. An alternative is to use shoe laces or any kind of good string to secure the sets. Simply thread it through the holes and put a knot in each end.

Quality is very good. Easy to assemble and inflate and impressive air pump, web seats and carrying capacity.

Heavier than expected which makes difficult for a one-person carry or store.

Cannot fold in 1/4 but only in 1/3 so does not fit well into carry/store bag.

Difficult to manuever in wind perhaps because it sits high in water, not sure.

We have been kayakers for a while, so this was our first excursion into canoeing. We have a small RV, so wanted to have something we could carry with us. Due to a variety of circumstances, we've only been able to use it twice and so far it hasn't been too pleasant. It is definitely sturdy and setting it up hasn't been a problem. We tried setting it up at home first and had some issues packing it up, but finally figured it out. We are used to sitting low in the kayaks, so when we put the canoe with the inflatable seats in the water, we felt really unstable. Not sure if this is just a factor of the seats or the canoe. We hope to get out again soon and try it without the seats and see if that is a better experience. Haven't given up yet.
