Inflatable kayak

Has anyone had any experience with a Saturn brand inflatable whitewater kayaks. They are made with 1,100 Dtek PVC material with polyurethane adhesive and polyester fabric on the inside of the tubes. The material overall thickness is .9mm.
I want to use the kayak on class III and IV WW rivers.

Dump. Buy a used Hyside, Aire, Sotar, something outfitter quality that will last forever. A used Hyside is about the same price as a new Saturn and it won't come apart. Stay away from any glued PVC, even if the dealer says "but it's triple super glued with folded extra gluey seams." Glued PVC sucks. Welded PVC or glued hypalon. I'd also say with either material, don't get the thin or cheap stuff (Hyside Rio Bravo, Tributary, etc.)
