Waves, second time around. I'm pleasantly surprised, had a chance to paddle around conflicted 1' waves and occasional 2' waves from wakes coming off the Naval Academys patrol boats. The Merganser has a good balance of above waterline volume in the bow and aft volume, ie. the bow doesn't bury, I'm sure in bigger waves it could disappear but I should be looking at 17 for me and not the 16 anyway. It would take until the end of summer to come up with a satisfactory review but there's enough from this one to warrant making a 17 for me at 190lbs. Eric has a 17W (23"wide) that would probably appeal to beggining paddlers compared to the regular 17 (22"wide).
