Submitted: 07-19-2007 by LeeG

I made a 16' and 18' Merganser previously. Only had it out in flat water with a slight breeze. It's different handling hull than the 18, not just more maneuverable, there's a looseness to the stern that I suspect would be good in rough water but feels almost like the cockpit/seat position needs to be an inch aft. I've got the backband about 3" forward of the back of the coaming which allows adequate room to twist ones torso around. Seeing a friend paddle it the stern sits 1" below the water and the bow is curved out so it looks balanced in the water. I'll post another review when I get the chance to get it in wind/waves.
It's a little like a s&g version of a Gulfstream/Scirocco.
