A well designed, durable, all-around canoe, the price/feature ratio can't be beat. At full weight capacity of 750 lbs. plus, this canoe only drew 5 inches. I found that by packing gear low to the bottom, the Rogue River is alot more stable, and in class III whitewater or above, the smoothe bottom makes it hard to keep the canoe straight. I am working on a modification to correct this one small problem, and will post a modified review. The inner-hull lining and built-in seats keep the canoe afloat and stable, even when swamped.
