Fiberglass - family owned for 25 plus years.
Great tandem canoe in this sportsmen family. Our top speed using GPS was 9km/hr. 7km is very comfortable for us later thirty-somethings. So speed is decent.
We have transported big game animals in it, even towed a moose shot in the water across the lake - but that was a workout! so decent load capacity
It has excellent secondary stability even for less experienced folks we have lent it too in challenging wind-whitecap conditions.
It's been a big part of the family.
Only reason I give it an 8 is it's terrible for Solo, and on real windy days on our large northern boreal forest lakes (yes one of them is Grey Owl's lake :))the bow catches the wind and if you have a weak partner in front, it will require more zig-zags to get where you want to go.
