Paddled at the Bay of Quinte in Ontario.
With the directional stabilizer boat tracks straight & moves slower than a kayak but faster than a canoe.
Paddling into a strong headwind requires effort but this is really a great boat that will handle open water & for some reason is easier paddled sitting up front as possible, & even easier when there is some weight behind you as the boat will carry it's momentum better.
Big waves & boat wake are easily handled & still water is surprisingly fast.
Tandem paddling gets you moving at a brisk pace & there is lots of room for two people to sit comfortably with some gear.
The Deluxe seat will put you higher up than the Pro seat & is also a good platform for fishing.
You can jump from the dock into the boat without worrying about tipping.
This is a very fun boat & it will do everything from solo to tandem paddling with relative ease. The 380X was faster than the 340X solo. See my 340X review.
