I just purchased the stealth about 3 weeks ago, just in time for duck season. I absolutely love it. It fits nicely into the 8' bed of my f250. I transpport it with the tailgate up, and use just one strap through the front handle and connected to the two rear stanchion holes and it stays put. It is only 100 pounds and I can get it in and out without any trouble. As to use on the water, let's just say that I do not believe they make a more stable boat in this size class. In buying it, I debated over the various models and quickly eliminated the phantom and the final attack, leaving my two choices down to the Stealth 1200 and the 2000. I concluded that the little difference in price was not worth it to gain just one gun holder and loose the side storage slots, plus only gain an inch or two in the cockpit. Also, I liked having the front and rear dry storage compartments on the 1200 vs. only one on the 2000. The first time out, we had two hunters, a dog, two guns, shells, and about 4 dozen decoys. This thing was not only rock solid, but went through the water with the greatest of ease. You will not go wrong with this boat.
