My only issue with the Bonafide brand is how insanely thin the plastic is. We received far too many coming back from shipping that had huge rips and holes where most would have a light gouge (i.e. FeelFree). All that comes to mind with that is reef rash and the toll fishing in the marsh takes on a boat.
I don't own a Bonafide and have no desire to get one. However, my buddy owns one and is one of the most durable kayaks I've ever seen.
I'm familiar with thin kayaks b/c I still own a Malibu Mini-X, have fished with it for years through oyster reefs and every marsh condition imaginable...never experienced hull problems. Every kayak, including the Titan's, have and will experience rips or holes through shipping damage. That's why there is a huge generic disclaimer sheet on top of every kayak that I've ever been shipped strictly warning me to check it out carefully before that driver has a chance to get away. They could start building kayaks out of AR plate steel, and these freight company's will still figure out a way put rips and holes in them.
Perhaps there is a completely different hull mfg process behind the SS107, but that little Bonafide is built like a tank and I wouldn't hesitate to take one through the marsh or beyond the breakers. My buddy actually got his Bonafide stuck on top of a jagged tipped tree while we were out fishing this winter.
This wasn't an old, rotten tree. The tip got embedded into the side of a scupper hole so firmly he couldn't paddle or forcefully rock off of it. I took a rope, tried to pull him of while he paddled and rocked at the same time, but it still wouldn't budge. He was stuck in 15', 52- degree water right at dark without a wet suit on, so jumping out and swimming around wasn't an attractive solution.
I was finally able to flag down a powerboat that came over, picked him up while I went over and lifted the rear of the Bonafide enough where the boat finally yanked it off the tree. As the outboard sucked water away exposing the submerged jagged tree tip, I was certain his Bonafide was taking on water, so we made a mad dash for the boat launch. The elderly gentleman in the powerboat trailed to make sure my buddy made it safely.
When we turned the Bonafide over to inspect the hull, there was barely a scratch next to the scupper hole...after my 250lb buddy had aggressively rocked back and forth for almost 1-1/2 hrs trying to get free. I've also seen him dragging his kayak along the rough textured lake ramps without any visible sign of significant scratches, so reef rash shouldn't be a concern either.
