Sand seems to be the color that is most likely to have problems, however we use them here in the shop for demo's all the time and have not seen a bad on as of yet, and the Kayaks are flying out as fast as we can get them. When you get your new hull take a close look at it, maybe change colors some on may be saying you don't look good in sand.....? We have had a sand one in testing and have found no problems, I say testing by going 2-3 miles in the gulf, playing with the Kings and dolphin and an occasional Back fin Tuna and have seen nothing to fail on the Adventure yet. FYI the Trapen just arrived so I'm gona see if I can get a 150lbs fish in the boat.
