My wife and I have had our 169 for about 7 months now and have had it on about 10 flat water lake trips and around 6 class I-III river trips. I have paddle many canoes and a few kayaks and as many of the others reviews state, this is a slow boat, but dang can it carry a load and take ALOT of abuse. We attemted a tight little run on the Marsh Fork of the Coal River when the water was running a little to low for a 16'9" boat and lost about a pound hull material scraping across the rocks, but at least the boat's a little lighter now!! We mainly use it as the support barge for my buddies when they run their kayaks on milder white water. This boat can carry enough beer for three kayakers and two other open boaters!! When and if this boat dies, I will definitly get another.
