Is the Chinook XP Worth Considering?

Aqua Glide Chinook In Whitewater One of our biggest concerns would be about the leaks that occur most often are the bladders separating in the seams. The repair kit usually takes care of the issue. Therefore, we feel that for the price and because of all the very high reviews for it; it should be something that you consider if you want a boat that can enable you to fish, paddle, and visit all at the same time.
