First I will say I actually own this item so i can give you real user info. I have it for about 5 years when they came in blue. The unit is still the same, just a different color. There is plenty of room front and back. I?m 6ft 240lb so not a small guy .I fished in it for years and went down the Delaware with ease. It?s extremely stable and I stood comfortably bass fishing in it. Kayak paddles will not work well so get a single canoe paddle they work great. Sitting in the middle is fine but I sit in the back and put a small cooler, anchor, tackle box and rod in the front.
David M Ben,
Thank you for your reply. I am 6'-5, 205 lbs, so your information was very comforting to hear.
