My Looksha (plastic) is now 12 plus years old. Just realized I had not reviewed the boat. It is used mostly on larger lakes and occasionally a trip to BC. One trip on the lower Missouri below Ft. Benton.

The Looksha has been a great boat for me. It fits my 5'11", 190 frame well. It holds up well to abuse and once you learn its quirks a pleasure to paddle. The only paddling issue is a tendency to weathercock in a light quartering wind. This is easily corrected by the rudder or if the winds are constant by leaning. It handles very well when leaned. A peculiar and reassuring trait is that the rougher the weather the better the boat handles and the more stable it feels. It plows through the waves like a U-boat. Chop, waves... it seems to relish them. Decent speed for plastic (ask the angry moose) and the storage has been more than adequate for 4 night trips. Knocked off a point because fit and finish are better on some similar boats. Pick one up if you can find a used one.
