We like ours, the ten footer. The wife and I can set it up on the deck of our boat and toss it over the life lines in under ten minutes. It rows decent. I have a 3 hp Johnson that will get me and the dog up on a plane. It will not get the wife and I up on a plane. I don't worry about scratching it up. It's already ugly and scratches aren't going to make it look worse. It's much more stable than our rowing dink, but not as stable as an inflatable. Still, after taking off most my SCUBA gear, I can haul myself out of the water over the transom without tipping it over.
What I don't like about it. The black seats get hot in the summer. I painted the areas you sit on with white paint. The oars are cheesy. I'm eventually going to modify a set of oar locks and use the oars from our rowing dink. Although the boat doesn't take up any room folded up, you still have to find a place to stow the seats and the transom.
