I use the DS-17 in the Texas coastal bays but had to replace the 40lb trolling motor with a 2.5 Mercury gasoline motor. Too much wind really drains the battery and its not a canoe you want to paddle very far. I fish the shallow flats and bays and never get too far into open water. The DS-17 is very seaworthy but I don't take unnessary chances. I solo often by putting a large plastic trash can in the bow and filling it with water to about 8 inches from the top. The lid helps reduce water from splashing into the canoe. I love fishing from this canoe, carries all my gear and will navigate very shallow water with out any noise. Wish I'd bought one years ago.
