As with most folks complaints, this canoe is more of a barge than a true watercraft. I acquired this red, heavy, plastic canoe through R.E.I. around 1990. It has since gone through much use, abuse (not intentional), and hibernation. The fact that the keel (or lack of) tends to deform the hull when underway is the very fact that allows this craft to reach its intended destination carrying absurd amounts of cargo. It likes to be loaded. It is also not a ballet dancer. Steering a fully loaded oil tanker would be an easier proposition. that aside, it is an extremely forgiving example of a basic canoe, and if you haven't got the musculature required to move it when out of water, then ask for someone elses help! I highly recommend it to those traveling the flowing waters. However, if you are planning for traversing lakes or locations involving high winds, then, by all means, load it to the gills!!
