I have a 13 foot Cool Cat. I've used it on the same trips as my hypalon cat. I have used it for solo over nighters and day trips. No problems so far, it's bounced off a few rocks and dragged bottom like my other boat and so far so good. I store it inflated unlike my other cat and do like how light and nimble it is. I am bothered by the fact that NRS only sold them for one year and I am not looking forward to ever having to patch it if it ever pops
. I've had it for two years, and am looking forward to getting it out again. Hope it's helps.
