Just bought a Carolina 13.5,and being used to a Swifty, It's no surprise that it seemed a bit difficult to turn. However, as longer boats go, I would have to say it's easier than others I've tried that were shorter. It's quite stable and can take quite an edge before it feels like it wants to go over. Weathercocking was a very minor problem and it was easy to compensate with only a slightly longer stroke on one side. The cockpit is roomy enough to carry lunch or snacks and with two hatches you can add the stove and campgear. Plenty of bungees for anything else. I give this one a 9 only because I opted out of the rudder and that's all it would need to be a perfect 10.
