I purchased a new Horizon in lightweight Kevlar last spring and it has been on several day trips and and a week long trip in the BWCA. As a day tripper with no load, it is a fast ride but a bit nervous if there is any wind as the bow tends to get pushed around in gusty conditions. This was remedied somewhat by lowering the bow seat about 3/4 of an inch. Load it up with gear for a week in the wilderness however and this boat really excels. It is very fast, tracks well and turns better than expected. It handled the endless rough seas we encountered with ease and was a pleasure to carry on the portages. It seems like the harder we pushed it the more impressive its performance was. This boat is made for wilderness tripping and that is what it does best and like all Mad River canoes, it looks good doing it's job.
