I special ordered the epoxy resin version 2 springs ago. It weighs a little less than 40 pounds. There were defects in the lay up, which surprised me. They did not effect operations, but I hate ‘em! The boat is very lively empty, so I do not recommend it for beginning paddlers. It will buck out the unwary at landings on a windy day. The hull does show scratches, but is tough. Loaded though, this boat is great on a trip, even solo paddled bow first. It can be tough to turn into the wind. It portages very easily. It carries gear for two easily.
