My wife had been paddling in an Old Town Otter and when she saw the Cloudburst colored Necky Manitou Sport sitting outside Appomattox River Company she had to have it. The clean lines front and rear promised smoother paddling and that is exactly what it delivered. Although not as stable as the Otter due to the slightly narrower beam, it was a much smoother boat to move through the water and was much easier to turn and control than its bigger brother the full sized Manitou, which she had tried a couple months earlier. She loves the storage compartment behind the seat and the light weight in spite of the increase in length - a definite trade up. We will be using the boat on the lakes and ponds in the central Virginia area and the calmer rivers.
