Just took delivery of a new Minnesotta II in graphite ultra light layup with ash and mahogany rails - 39 pounds. Tested the boat before buying it and it not only goes like a bat out of hell (6.8 mph on GPS), it turns extremely well for a boat this size. The woodwork is gorgeous but the lay up could be a little better for a boat in this price range.
Having owned other Wenonahs in Kevlar lay ups I can tell you this one is paper thin in some places and very strong and stiff in others. Durability is the question, but then again, you only live once, right?
Looking forward to putting it through its paces. Would rate it a 10 but for the lay up.
