After a decent amount of research for a solo canoe I decided on the Vagabond. I paddled 8.5 miles with a 10 to 15 mph headwind a majority of the trip on my maiden voyage a couple of days ago. I found the boat to be everything I had hoped it would be, stable, maneuverable, tracks perfectly, and light, as well as good looking.
I am 5'11" and 190 lbs. and carried approx. 15 lbs of gear with me. Often times we buy things with a well known higher than average priced name/label and that is the majority of what we are paying for. Not We-no-nah, in my opinion. The craftsmanship, engineering, and beauty are very much evident in their products. Couldn't be happier.
