I have had this David Yost designed canoe for 6 years having bought it used from Algonquin Outfitters. (It used to called the Outfitter 17) It is the kevlar version (57 lbs) with aluminum trim, a sliding bow seat and a kneeling thwart. The longest canoe trip was 70 km over 3 days in Algonquin Park with the guys. During that trip I had no trouble keeping up with the other canoists despite being fairly new to tripping and not being in particularly good shape. The 4 km portage was tough. It certainly made me glad I bought kevlar. The canoe is well made, has good capacity, dry, tracks okay and stable. I've soloed the canoe a fair bit and it does well for a 17 footer. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a well-built all-round canoe.
