I have owned my Manitou sport for nearly a year now. I have used it everywhere from the Mather gorge on the Potomac, to flat lakes in NY. I LOVE this boat. My largest complaint is that every manufacturer's review claims it is just a wimpy rec boat, but I've taken it absolutely everywhere. it never fails me. It is highly maneuverable, competent in white water and moves like a dream on flat. I load it down with cargo every time I go out and have never had to dry my stuff out thanks to the terrific stern compartment.
I highly recommend this boat for anyone who is just starting out, or anyone looking for a good deal that can execute a wide variety of conditions well.
