This is basically an old race boat design that (because Jensen hadn't thought of "wings" yet like modern flatwater race boats) functions fairly well as a light tripping boat. It is very fast and can be raced with success since it sneaks into the citizen class. For tripping it is best suited to smaller paddlers with fairly light loads. This is not the boat for longer trips on big water since the sheer ends, tumblehome and low freeboard make it a handful if the wind picks up. I had the Kevlar cross-rib version and was quite pleased with the durability and weight. Certainly I could discern no performance difference on the water between any of the layups. If you are looking for a weekend cruiser then this could be the canoe for you.
