I got a chance to paddle one this summer. its a good play boat and seems like it has some decent down river ability. as far as the out fitting goes prudence would dictate that you spend a some time with some closed cell foam and epoxy to get it all dialed in, as the stock outfitting has a limited range of possibilities

The design of the boat is actually decent. I paddled one for a couple years and enjoyed it. However, outfitting is mediocre.

As it's slightly obsolete, I don't think the boat is worth a dime more than 350$ in mint condition. But if you can find one for a good price / good condition, I think it's a nice design.
