That is the boat I went from class II to III+ in. I loved that boat and regretted selling it. I bought mine new in 2005 or so for $650. Sold it in 2007 for ?$400-$450 or so. Great All around boat, forgiving, easy to roll, great for surfing, good transition from rec boating in my opinion.
Not the best outfitting, but that can be or might have been changed by the previous owner. Also sounds like it would be a bit large for you, but may work if you often travel with a bag or something. Pretty bombproof plastic. All of my experience with it was on small NE rivers and creeks.
