My Appalachian has proven to be a great all around river canoe. It is a high volume boat with excellent secondary stability and good initial stability so it handles class III water with ease. With a good J stroke it does very well in the flat stretches. I generally paddle it solo and do not have trouble keeping up with tandem boats. Where it truely excels is in its load carrying capacity. On river clean ups I have loaded it with 19 tires one trip then over 1450 pounds of trash the next. This is one tough boat! I did try it out in the Boundary Waters and Lake Superior no problem carrying 4 weeks of gear but.. let's just say that there are a lot of boats far better for lakes and portages.
