Great boat! Very fast and paddles well with any style, J stroke, C stoke or hit and switch. Above all, it's quiet. Good design with no gurgle when it comes up to speed. I'm not real wild about the tractor seat, but it does slide to help adjust the trim. With no "rocker" the boat doesn't turn as quickly as other designs. It makes up for this minor fault by tracking straight and is very fast. This boat rewards good technique and a bent shaft paddle. I can usually get strokes to side before switching. It also has enough volume for a comfortable week tripping. I recommend this boat for any intermediate paddler and above who wants to go solo! I paddled this boat up the Thoroughfare River in N. Idaho (between Upper and Lower Priest Lake) last Memorial Day against a very strong current from the snowmelt. Loaded with 4 days of supplies, it made it when even tandem canoes were turning back and giving up!
