I bought this boat after evaluating several day touring boats. I had test paddled the 135L and liked most of the features except it did produce a noticeable bow wake at about 3.5-4 mph. I purchased a 2008 140S model and they had fixed this bow wake.
The 140S has many nice features including the molded knee braces, subset deck rigging, and a slightly upturned bow. I am 5'10", 155 lbs and wear a size 8.5US shoe and the boat fits me very well and is very comfortable. The boat is comfortable to paddle at 4.5-5MPH with a nice smooth quite glide. The boat is also easy to roll as it is fairly narrow 23.5" and has a low deck. I would recommend this boat as a great value for a day touring boat.
