Can't find a lot on line about it.
Is it the royalex one?
If it is you have a good boat from what I found.
If it does not have a removable yoke for carrying you can add one.
It is small enough you can easily use a double blade if you so wish.
Depending on the outfitting and if it was outfitted for your friend, you may have to adjust it's placement.
The two solo boats I have I had to adjust both.
The way to know is, it should be easy to track with simple C or J strokes, if it is work then some adjustment may be needed.
