I have paddled many boats (e.g., Caribou S, Gulfstream, Kodiak, Solstice, Magellan, Q-boat) and this boat ranks up at the top. First of all, this boat is designed to play. It can move and change direction quickly -- all that is required is a slight edge and a sweep and you are going in a different direction. Second, it is fast. Third, deck layout is great. Fourth, quality is top notch. Fifth, stability (secondary and primary) is very good -- very confidence inspiring -- a boat for all levels.
I have only two criticisms.
First, the back band does not sit properly for me.
Second, you have to get used to the two step system for adjusting the skeg - first pinch and push and then adjust. This has been corrected in this year's model.
Finally, how do you spell the Capella 167 - simple -- F-U-N.
