    It seems clear that the person who did this favorable review did not mean to give it a 2 star rating. Not sure why they did but after reading other reviews of this Kayak and this one that shows the kayaks flexibility of being used by more than one person, or by only one, I felt like we had found a kayak that, as grandparents with six grandchildren, we've probably found a kayak that would work for us.

    I am curious as to why this person only gave the product 2 stars. The adjustable seat fact was helpful for consideration.
