We have the Tuf-Weave version of the Itasca as our second canoe that we use for camping trips to the backcountry areas of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. As both of these Parks have huge deep water lakes and high altitude winds resulting in the potential for very large, cold waves we find the seaworthiness of this canoe very reassuring. It also holds all of our normal camping gear for two without sacrificing performance. I have now used it for two summers and can attest that it does handle the very large waves splendidly, and seems just as manuerable as the 16' canoe we had gotten used to before. At 37" wide it just barely fits on the after market canoe rack system on our Durango -- but it does, so life is good. We are coming to enjoy this canoe very much and appreciate the ease of paddling due to its unique gunwale shape that draw in close to the paddler, and its ability to glide smoothly through the water. The wooden gunwales look sharp and go well with our wooden beavertail paddles. All in all the only downside to this canoe is having a large enough garage or outbuilding to store it in.
