We took our Jensen Whitewater 2 out for our maiden voyage on the North Thompson river. What a fantastic canoe. It's brilliant. Fast, sleek, tracks exceptionally well, stable, and more than responsive enough in eddy turns for our racing purposes. It will not replace our Tripper as our do absolutely everything boat, but for river and lake speed...the reason we purchased it...perfect. I'm not surprised it was Dave Lewis's choice for the Quest.
For an experienced paddler, particularly those accustomed to marathon canoes, the stability of the Whitewater 2 will feel solid. For new comers, other options like the Tripper will provide more confidence. It is a compromise one between a little more speed with the 33 inch beam, versus a little more stability on the Tripper's 35 inches.
I should note that our model is cut 1 inch lower in the bow, centre and stern. It was calm today, so the hope is that it will be less effected by any cross wind.
