I bought a CR in Royalex from Ozark River Company,and am very pleased with the canoe so far. I am a hefty guy, at 240 lbs., but still have noticed NO oil canning as noted by some others. The Royalex is much lighter than my old 87 lb. fiberglass laker, and is very thick as compared to the other canoe.
It is taking some getting used to, as it paddles very differently from the old canoe, and is much faster, quicker to turn, and after a stroke of the paddle, glides nicely. (the old laker was like running in glue compared to this boat). I am so pleased with it that I am welding up a new canoe trailer just to haul it around with! All in all, I am a 'happy camper'.
