We purchased a Kingfisher from a canoe/kayak specialty store in Austin, this being the recommended model from our knowledgeable saleperson. Our family tried it out last weekend on a river camping trip with another family and couldn't be more pleased with our purchase. We were loaded down with lots of camping and fishing gear and this canoe is easy to paddle and very stable. We never came close to tipping, even in fast water. For fishing, the stability is a huge bonus. This boat is wide, which allows for lots of room to carry gear. Since the Llano River is rocky in some areas, the Royalex did get some scuffs and minor scratches, but no harm done. Amoung our group, there were 4 canoes and we tried out the others and were glad we chose the We-no-noh Kingfisher, it was the best of all. This is a great all around canoe that is perfect for our needs while being lighweight and of very good quality. We are so pleased with our purchase, we are considering buying another We-no-nah so we won't have to borrow another canoe for our family of 5. Can't go wrong with this one unless you want to set speed records.
