I bought the original Chinook in 1984 and paddled it for over 15years mostly in big lakes. The boat required a rudder for dealing with tailwinds or cross winds. With the rudder it handled great. At the Sea Kayak Symposium in Castine Maine I paddled lots of other boats and would not trade for most of them. I paddled with lots of other boats and kept up very well. Maybe I'm just strong. I put a LOT of miles on this boat and loved every minute. There are prettier boats but the Chinook is safe, stable, comfortable and pretty fast. Kayak snobs make fun of it.... till I pass them or rescue them.
