I built a cedar strip Kipawa in 1998. I've taken three week long trips with it since. It is a wonderful tripping design. Initial stability is a little tender when the canoe is empty. It settles down very nicely when loaded for tripping. It tracks well. Turning is aided greatly by bow paddler input. The differential rocker, with more bow rocker, responds well to bow strokes (posts, draws, and rudders). It is a little broad to paddle solo in a sit 'n switch style. It paddles well from the kneeling thwart when leaned in a Canadian cruising solo style. My next boat will be a pure solo day tripper. Too often when I want to paddle my partners don't.
