They are solid boats. I had a 13', not sure what vintage because I bought it used. I didn't really like it, but I wanted a bigger boat and I'm a bit picky. I found the floor to ride somewhat high, limiting the depth below the frame for gear and footbar, and I also ended up needing taller oar towers. But it was an awesome starter boat, you can't really go wrong.
