I love this boat for it's purpose. No the Encounter is not my choice for a day tripper, unless the day trip may include packing out a field dressed white tail deer. It is faster than a solo-plus, and easier to load than a voyager. This is a LARGE solo and in my experience needs to be stern loaded for best performance. I am 5'8" and 165 lbs and love the way this handles loaded.

This boat also does well for weekend lake camping trips. I can't think of another solo boat that handles a 70qt cooler, 4 man tent, fishing tackle, and a folding lounge chair across a large windy lake with the ease and grace of my Encounter. I have other boats for other uses. No boat can do all things well.
