My main attributes for a canoe were: decent solo paddling boat, light touring boat, easy to handle (portage) solo, good for the small streams and rivers in Georgia, and the occasional lake. I have to say that this boat fits well and covers my needs. It paddles well kneeling in the middle, in front of the bow seat (turned around). Very stable for polling and fishing, with good initial and secondary stability. My boat is not IQ equipped. I would definitely buy again.
