The Cruiser is a sheer delight to paddle. Great for day-tripping or a weekend. It tracks really well but it is NOT a easy boat to turn as compared to others I have paddled. Also, because of the hard lines (below the water) on the bow and stern, which make it track so well, when used in moving water such as a stream, the water has greater purchase on the hull than other more rounded bow & sterned boats and this causes it to swing with the current more easily. It's tender on center and this causes inexperienced paddlers some anxiety. Also, in windy conditions, she will ship a little water where the bow lowers but only occasionally and not enough for concern. Fast and smooth...nothing paddles like a Sawyer Cruiser.
