You should definently check out what Dagger has done with their outfitting for the 07' Nomads. Way, way, way, more room behind the seat. We are talking one over nighting motha (might as well bring your dog along). And on top of the new seat there are also structural improvements on the inner skeleton of the boat. The prototype at the outdoor reatiler show even had grippy material on the step out support to prevent slippage in a crucial escape moment. Dagger really has brought out all of the stops to make the Nomad the best performing and safest extreme creeker on the market. I assure you the durability will blow you away!
