The Champlain is a very forgiving and safe canoe for inexperienced paddlers. The MNII is not. With such little freeboard the MNII can be a dangerous canoe when the waves are cresting 2 ft. The Champlain on the other hand will still right itself even if the paddlers lose focus in big waves. The MNII slices through the water and tracks incredibly well due to its minimal rocker and thin design, but this makes sharp turns very difficult. The Champlain is slower, wider, and bobs over the waves while getting carried by the wind. It has much more rocker and higher sidewalls.
