I paddled on Lake Huron (MI) and the boat was fast, handled waves very well, and tracked good (considering no rudder). As a bonus, the boat is very stable, a pretty dry ride, very comfortable, and a 60-lb child can ride on the back with no problem.
We practiced capsizing the boat and doing rescues, and found the boat to be very easy to upright and re-enter from deep water. The boat is also very buoyant and pearling did not occur when moving downwind in 2-ft breakers. The boat is watertight and lots of fun. I cruised at about 5.5 mph over a 6 mile distance and still felt fresh. I highly recommend this boat for a price of about $500 it can't be beat.
