Picked mine up today. Seat is comfy. It feels like the pedals are closer to the seat than the PA12 I had. The deck looked small at first but once I got in there is a lot of room. Easy to stand. There is a little bit of flex when standing but Im assuming thats because of the hatch...its minimal. Rudder is VERY responsive. I like the rudder controls because they are flush..no more getting my fly line caught..Compared to the PA the OB feels like a feather both in and out of the water! I actually like not having the H rails sticking up..makes it easier to get in/out. I was only in it for a few minutes but so far it seems solid.
