The Lost Pond is a Rushton Copy laid-up in Kevlar. It is very well made, but the fine lines and extremely narrow stems make it useless for river or creek paddling. It is very difficult to turn and with less than 6 inches of freeboard-you cannot "lean" it into a turn.
It is best suited to small lakes and ponds because its straight and narrow stems tend to cut instead of shed waves.
All in all a very seaworthy craft, and ideal for pond-hopping in the backcountry. It is however, quite expensive.
