I bought the Seda 17ft "Swift" this spring 2004, and have used it all summer and into the fall in Pacific Northwest waters. It is easy to get underway and very fast if you want too. I have the deluxe [lighter] fiberglass option and it is light enough [47lbs] for a 69 year old to car-top. It is a good boat for the beginner as well as the more advanced paddler. It is quite stable [24" beam] for such a fast boat, and has very good initial stability. I had the factory rudder installed as I would not be with out one in heavy waves/chop in a Pacific NW gale! For the price it's a fantastic buy. I even let my wife use it!
