At 17'6" this vessel is a bit long for the average solo paddler, but as a tandem, this boat really moves and tracks quite well. Even a brisk cross-wind doesn't seem to critically affect the overall performance. As a large paddler (6'8," 275#), I find little difficulty paddling this craft solo. Kneeling just aft of the center portaging thwart or sitting on a couple "Mae West" lifejackets provide a stable platform for extended fly-casting. I am able to effectively stand (not recommended) while flyfishing and secondary stability is quite good. I would highly recommend this canoe for a pair of experienced paddlers or a solo paddler of large proportions. Mine is the BlackGold Graphite/Kevlar composite and though spendy, it should provide a great platform for many years.
