Great boat with a narrow niche. While you could use this as a river running playboat, you could also just use your playboat and grow a pair. If you want a steep creeking machine that reduces the pin-potential on tight corners and pinball sections, this is your boat. If the river is only 20' wide, who cares how fast the boat is? On my local runs, with blind drops ranging from 2-12 meters, this boat is phenomenal, confidence inspiring, and fun.
If you buy this boat, know what it is designed for, it does those things very well.
