Finally had a chance to put our new Dirigio Tandem Plus in the water this Mother's Day. What a treat! I am former whitewater boater who has not been paddling for some years. My wife is a novice paddler and both found this boat to meet our needs and expectations.
We took the Dirigo out on a breezy day on the local lake. It tracked extremely well, even in the wind. It is stable, surprisingly quick and very comfortable to sit in. My wife who is just starting to paddle felt very comfortable in this boat. It is a longer, heavier boat to transport, but you would never know in the water. My wife and I have no problem lifting this boat.
This is a great recreational boat that is versatile, fun and should meet the needs of a range of paddlers!
