Just a quick note on this new (2009 model) British style boat from CD. Our local rep loaned me a kevlar boat for Paddle Oregon, a SAG'ed trip on the Willamette River. I was sweep/safety person, so really appreciated the speed and responsiveness of this boat. I was very lightly loaded, but there was plenty of room for expedition gear.
The boat is a rocket, especially in kevlar, and has the usual good CD quality. I'm looking forward to trying this out on the ocean soon. This is not for everybody, but it's a very nice boat -- I gave it a 9/10 as I found the back brace uncomfortable and would replace it with an aftermarket version (but I have back problems, so bear that in mind).
