Purchased this as a dual purpose; single SOT, and tandem +1. We enjoy fossil hunting, and rock hounding, so we needed a cargo capable boat. I also wanted it to able to paddle as a single. My son and I went out on the river with minor waves, me on the Corona and my son on his Nomad to try them out and check for leaks. My first impression from the center seat was, "What a barge!"
We practiced maneuvering in the tributary then in the river choppy water. The corona didn't weathervane too much but it is tough to turn quickly. The trade off is extreme stability. I was able to stand up, even in the choppy river! I am pleased with the speed as a single, beginner paddler, and will update this posting when I get to take it out as a tandem.
