The Current Designs Stratus 18 is designed more for racing or fitness than for as a true touring boat. It would be a handful with a full load and open water. On the other hand, as a fitness boat, it's a delight. Nimble, quick to react, lively enough to edge easily, but very dependable in inland conditions. The new models have a Seal Line rudder system (like the Epic) which is a vast improvement. Where the Stratus really separates itself from the competition is in shallower water. It doesn't suck down like the Epic18, and pops up nicely. No surprises when surfing either. About the only real negative is the rather poorly finished cockpit ring, which tends to wear on your knees if you paddle 'knees up' K1 style. This can be overcome with a careful foam installation.
