The Mad River Malecite is the best boat I've ever bought. It's carbon/fiberglass/kevlar hull is strong and lightweight. Combined with classic wood gunnels and seats, the Malacite gives you a paddling experience like no other. It's light and comfortable enough to put down the miles, day after day. The boat has a flex that I found odd at first but after a few minutes, it felt more like living being than a boat. Paddling the Malacite is like walking in your most comfortable shoes.
I adjusted my front seat back to trim it for my heavier bow partner and it works perfectly for a longer solo boat now for me - paddled backwards.
Out of my four canoes (2 OT poly, 1 OT fiberglass & 1 MR Malacite), the Malacite is by far my favorite. I can easily pick it up, carry & load it by myself - even after paddling all day
