Yes this boat has held up to my test! My 007 is about 3 yrs old and has takin a real beating. It started out as a play baot for me then I moved it up too big water down river runner into Steep creeking. I think if i very really get another 007 it will be the same yr as i have now.
Ask anyone that knows me and my boat. If there is a rock to splat or spin on top of Im on it. I will probly wear the bottom thin before i break it.
Big water its great. Ive ran all kinds of stuff in it. The Kitzmiller section of the North branch of the Potomac at up to 5.5. ft, Savage river at 850 cfs, Stoney river in WV.
Its an all around boat that my 6 yr old even paddles. I would recomend it to anyone that will want to grow into and progress in there boat.
