Submitted: 05-01-2000 by RLC

After paddling every conceivable glass touring boat I settled on the Boreal Design Alvik. This boat provided the best combination of initial and secondary stability without any sacrifice in performance. The boat has a comfortable keyhole cockpit with padded seating, easily ajustable rudder controls which also provide solid bracing, excellent tracking, and the finest fiberglass and paint finish I have seen from any manufacturer. Factor in the price, which is about $500 less than comparable glass boats, and you have all the making of one of the best boats on the market. The only downfall to this boat is a slight tendancy to weathercock more than other boats in its class but this is easily corrected with the rudder system. For those wishing a little more stability the Boreal Narwhal is a very similiar boat in its appointments and finish but it is a few inches shorter and a bit wider providing rock solid initial stability and greter secondary stability. The Narwhal unfortunately tracks so well that it doesn't like to turn without some work.
